|Tomato Soup and Mushroom Soup $12|
|Condiments - Sauces and Fruits|
We also ordered the free flow drinks at $2 per person. The homemade barley was real thick and good. Totally justify the price tag.
|Pork Slices $8, Shang Pin Beef $14|
|Baby Cabbage $4, Fresh Tofu $4, Mushroom Platter $14|
We also ordered the Shang Pin Kongfu Noodle $3 which we waited a very long time for ... more than half an hour. It was essentially a flatter version of ban mian and more expensive considering the portion. The two of us had just 4-5 short strands of noodles each. If you come in a big group, be prepared to eat just 1 to 2 strands. I would advise that you cook the noodles for a long period of time for it to become soft. The texture of the noodles was surprisingly smooth and slippery. In terms of taste, it was like the good old days when qui lian ban mian noodles taste awesome!
For the record, I have visited Shang Pin Hot Pot twice. The first was during dinner on a Friday. The restaurant was fully booked. Thankfully, we made reservations. The second visit was during lunch on a weekday. During lunch time, the restaurant was not full. But in terms of service, it was way better at night when they had full staff strength. The post content and photos are all based on the second visit.
As for the question whether Shang Pin Hot Pot 尚品火锅 or Hai Di Lao 海底捞火锅 is better? Well, I am in no position to compare as I have not tried Hai Di Lao before. So far, I like the food at Shang Pin Hot Pot =)
