Sept. 11, 2017:  For dinner at night, we went to Garden Restaurant (花園酒家) in Yau Ma Tei for hot pot!  This hot pot was in a comfortable restaurant on the upper floors of the restaurant that also serves dim sum, a la carte dinners, and more.  I remember eating dim sum here at the restaurant with my family as a kid.

It was a good deal for hot pot of $198 per person before the 10 p.m. time slot.

We got there at 6:30 p.m. and entered together as a group.  Upon being seated, we could go out into the drinks station to choose any drinks of our choice — it was all-you-could-drink too (non-alcohol of course!).

I chose my favourite plum juice which goes so well with heat-inducing hot pot meals.

There was a huge list of hot pot foods to order from on a list.

The condiments station was significant too and was the first thing you saw when entering the restaurant through the elevators.

They had a lot of different sauces and condiments.  I was amused that the soy sauce was dispensed via a water cooler. XD

We ordered a lot of valuable seafood to eat like fish, fish stomach, and more.  Scallops and shrimp were part of the all-you-can-eat hot pot already.

It was so different eating hot pot in Hong Kong.  They have way more interesting and high value items on the menu for choosing.

We had a parlsey and thousand year egg soup broth paired with a Ma La spicy one.  The ma la broth wasn’t as spicy as expected but more salty.  I stuck with the less savory side and the foods indeed picked up the fresh parsley flavours.

It was a good hot pot meal.  Super worth it too!  At the end of our meal, we saw so many high school students come in for the deal in hordes.
