Hot pot—a traditional Chinese meal where a simmering pot of broth is set in the centre of a dining table with people dipping a vast selection of ingredients, including sliced meat, seafood and vegetables, into the soup—is one of the most loved dining experiences and winter delights in Hong Kong.
While it might not be feasible to gather our friends and family and dine-in at a restaurant to share a meal at the moment, there are still plenty of stellar restaurants offering hot pot delivery and takeaway menus for you to enjoy at home this season. Featuring a great selection of soup bases and fresh ingredients, these are the best hot pot takeaway offerings you shouldn’t miss while the weather lasts.
