|A little different from Chinese hot pots, it's much thicker|
I am not a fan of hot pot and I could probably fill a phone book with my reasons. But we've both heard so many good things about Posh from our friends, and Michael seemed like he was really keen on trying it. It was also $17 per person for the all you can eat dinner menu. So I thought I would take a chance with him. The restaurant is very small and has only a few tables, seating at most two dozen or so, but the environment was simple and modern.
|Bok choi, enoki mushrooms and baby corn|
Michael and I sat at the bar area, it was a little squishy but it made the dining experience seem more cozy. Another thing I liked about this hot pot restaurant is that it is very different from other hot pot places we've seen before. Where many of them are dirty, loud, and lack customer service. But Posh has none of that. The waitress was nice enough to explain to us the process and the how-tos, considered a rarity at Asian restaurants. There was water and soy sauce for us to pour in the pot when it gets dry, and when we eat our meats, dip the cooked meats in to the a sauce of raw egg, giving it a nice creamy texture.
|The cooking element, adjust temperature as needed|
The "pot" arrives with cabbage and broth inside, under a cooking element. In goes the vegetables that we had ordered, such as enoki and shitaki mushrooms, radish, potatoes, radish,and bok choi, combining their tastes nicely with the broth. What I thought was unique from this broth was that it there was a creamy and buttery taste along with the soy sauce, which I found very tasty. What can be wrong with butter?
|All you can eat pork and beef!|
For meats, Michael and I ordered pork and beef, both meats were very tasty, they were thinly sliced and soft to chew. It was weird dipping in to a raw egg though, at first it just felt it was meat going in to a raw egg but after I did taste the creaminess of the egg going along with the meat.
