Hotpot / Steamboat is very popular in Bangkok and you can see many Shabu Shabu restaurants in every shopping centre. Most of them use normal chicken stock for the soup base but recently I found something better.
I found Ping’s Hotpot and I especially like their premium soup base. When we eat hotpot, we will definitely drink the soup and if the soup is good, everything else will taste better. It’s not the cheapest hotpot in town but its price is comparable to big names like MK Gold.
Spicy Tom Yam Soup (left) and Teochew Herbal Goodness Soup (right) [50 baht each] – The Tom Yam is sour and spicy but it will give your hotpot items more flavour. On the other hand, the herbal soup is nutritious as it includes things like ginseng, goji berry, jujube, peppercorn, taung siem, pukkee and huay sua.
Magnificent Mongolian Soup (left) and Superior Ping’s Original Soup (right) [50 baht each] – The Mongolian soup has a very strong herb and spice taste which was too much for me. It includes herbs such as sichuan pepper, camphor seed, cinnamon, liquorice, dried ginger, nutmeg and star anise. If you want something smooth and light, go for the original soup.
Did you manage to identify my favourite soup bases? They are Superior Ping’s Original Soup and Spicy Tom Yam Soup.
