寬巷子鍋品美食 Restaurant – taipei

My friend recommended this hotpot place “寬巷子鍋品美食” it is located at 126-6, Section 1, Xinsheng South Road ,Zhongzheng District. I knew that Taipei takes their hotpot seriously and this place takes the presentation to an artistic level. One of the aspects of hotpot I like is that its a course meal where you can have a real conversation with your dinner. We were a party of four so we could not try everything. There were other selections on the menu that all, if not most, plated for your viewing pleasure. This is on my list to re-visit to try out the rest of their dishes.

The rolls are dumplings, and the flower was shrimp walnut with a branch used as the utensil. We got the normal and spicy broth combination, I prefer the spicy one, but it was good to have go back and forth when it got too hot. 1. IMG_1729

The branches stick out as the shrimp dish is cooking, they also provide an hour glass for each dish so your food will not over cook and consumed at the exact right time… 2. IMG_1732

This next one was something I can’t describe… But it was interesting, in a good way. 3. FullSizeRender

Our meat selections were presented as a flower. 4. IMG_1733

The greens provided was stunning. Almost did not want to eat it, but then hot pot needs some greens… 5. IMG_1734

The meal continues… 6. IMG_17357. IMG_1736

After hotpot we went to eat more, as people do in Taipei, needed sticky rice sesame balls served on ice at one of lager night markets… Amazing… Then one more… 8. IMG_1738

Then peanut, cilantro, ice cream wrap… it was a refreshing taste. 9. IMG_1741
