Recently we went to check out one of their new hotpot tasting menus ($1,488 for 2-4 pax, $2,888 for 6-8 pax).


New on the menu is a Sichuan-style hot and sour soup base. The soup was tasty and filled with all the standard ingredients - mushrooms, eggs, tofu, tree fungus, bamboo shoots, carrots and pork. But note that they don’t tone it down so choosing this for your soup base means committing to the hot and sour flavour all night.


As for hotpot items, here’s what on the tasting menu.

Verdict

It’s easy to see why Megan’s Kitchen is a local favourite for hotpot. The food is solid (especially loved the skewers and meatballs) and the service is great. Unless you like everything on the set menu, ordering a la carte may be better value. And note that while the restaurant has English menus, it helps if guests can speak Cantonese.
