From true hot pot lovers to the curious, Broadway Macau’s 4th edition of Hot Pot Sensations is here to amaze everyone with this unique side of Chinese gastronomy. Think of it as comforting winter food, because that’s precisely what these homey meals are.
Still unsure? The basis of hot pot is the broth which can be either spicy or non-spicy with an assortment of raw ingredients such as vegetables, sliced meat, fish and seafood. The raw ingredients are put into the broth and boiled until they are cooked and can be enjoyed piping hot. The best thing is that every ingredient leaves its flavor behind in the broth making it taste even better, the more you boil! After boiling, enjoy your meat, fish or seafood on its own or with an array of condiments.
Until February 29, 2020, Broadway Macau offers one of the widest-ranging hot pot series in town! Prices range from around MOP $268 to MOP $600 per hot pot dish. Choose between 20 authentic varieties of hotpots at 14 different outlets across Broadway Food Street.
From braised lamb brisket casserole to suckling pig and lobster seafood hot pot, braised fish head and mutton hot pot, or seafood hot pot in rice broth, there is an incredible variety to try out at several restaurants in Broadway Food Street. Want to know more about these delicacies? Keep reading!
