Throwback to when I tried out Jiu Gong Ge Steamboat with #TeamSports after watching Wonder Woman. It was…massive.
We only ordered the $118 seafood hotpot, which was said to be meant for 2 to 4 pax. The waitress kept recommending for us to get the bigger sized ones, but I’m glad we chose the smallest one. Wouldn’t have been able to finish otherwise.
$118 seafood hotpot for 2-4 pax!
(They have $148, $168, $198, and $238 portions for groups up to 8-10 pax. Even a $399 5-layer roasted seafood tower hahaha.)
At first glance, the hotpot looks freaking massive. But upon the second look, it’s actually a pretty manageable portion size if you split it between 4 people! There were prawns, baby lobsters, crabs. oysters, clams, and even some instant noodles added into the mix. The broth is also refillable so feel free to drink up!
It does come in a mala (麻辣) broth as well, but it sounded pretty intimidating to us so the clear broth was a safer option. It was pretty tasty as well so no regrets~ It was also pretty messy to eat, but they did provide plastic gloves so your hands don’t reek of seafood hours after the meal! (We did forget about the gloves and ended up using our hands anyway tho.)
It’s amazing just how much food I’ve been eating since I’ve been in gyro. We all enjoy food so much (okay maybe them a lot more than me). It’s good to be with people who can decide on a restaurant to go to within seconds LOL.
I’m not a food blogger alright. This was just a mere description of what and how we ate. I’m not the best to get food reviews from, but the rest of them said this huge steamboat was worth trying! Trust them instead. They know food better than me.
Jiu Gong Ge is only located right around our old office – I wonder why we didn’t have dinner there sooner…
