Dinner With Friends At DIY Mini Hotpot, Menglembu.

Last Tuesday evening, we were invited to a dinner treat at DIY MINI HOTPOT. It is our first time trying out the food here. It was a cold rainy day and just nice for a hot pot & bbq dinner.
We were early. We reached just before 6.30 pm.
The ground floor has only mini hotpot or mini steamboat. The 1st floor has both mini hotpot & BBQ (2 in 1). Here are the rates. There is a special rate for senior citizens, aged 60 years & above.
Ground floor.
The place is fully air-conditioned.
1st floor.
By the time we finished our dinner, both the 1st and ground floor were fully packed with customers.
An in-built electric stove at our table. On the left is for grilling and on the right for hot pot. We asked for Tom Yum and plain soup base.
It is buffet style.
Checking out the types of food available.
Types of sauces.
These are ready cooked food items. Fried beancurd, fried meat nuggets, fried beancurd rolls and fried chicken wings on the left and on the right are the fried rice and fried noodle.
These are uncooked food items available. Just take what you want and return to own table to  cook these items.
 Noodles, eggs, mushrooms, gao zi dumplings, bread, etc.
 Fresh green veggie and sesame salad sauce, eggs & dried noodles.
Gao zi dumplings and siew mai dumplings, etc.
Chilled cut watermelon and sweet desserts in the refrigerator.
We started off with some thinly sliced meat. We grilled the meat slices with some butter on top of the parchment paper placed over the griller.
While the meat is being grilled and the food cooking in the soup, I enjoyed a plate of lettuce salad with sesame sauce and some ready cooked chicken wings and roasted pork.

I took some snapshots of wall decorations and hangers but only this one turns out clear.
Notice on their Chinese New Year off days.
By the time we finished our dinner, it was 9 pm. It took us slightly more than 2 hours to enjoy this Hot Pot dinner. Thank you, friends for a wonderful dinner and fellowship.

But if we are living in the light of God's presence,

just as Christ does, then we have wonderful fellowship and

joy with each other, and the blood of Jesus his Son

cleanses us from every sin.

(1 John 1:7, The Living Bible-TLB)

  5. This looks like such a fun place!! Both food and fun! And you can get whatever you want, and cook it however you want. I think the yellow flower is a wild sunflower and the white one is a moon flower.
