Need I say more? Nine Spices Hot Pot (at 5320 S. Kirkman Rd., Orlando, FL 32819, 407-704-1033, opens Sun-Thurs: 11:30 am-1:00 am; Fri-Sat: 11:30 am-2:00 am) has only been opened for five months in Orlando, FL, but it has already gathered much praises and loyal customers. The reason: Nine Spices Hot Pot has implemented a fantastic traditional Chinese cooking/eating style with an added modern twist. The end result: great variety of clean and fresh food items and sauces are readily available; customers are their own personal chefs (so any dish may be as greaseless or greasy, as spicy or spicelss, as one wants it to be) and are quickly satisfied. Since customers are cooking for themselves:
- choosing from variety of soup bases: herbal broth, tomato broth, spicy hot broth (very very hot!!!), bone broth, turnip radish soup base, and original broth
- with some fantastic sauces at sauce bar (picked out and placed in big ceramic spoons)
- any ingredients on the conveyor belt may be picked up and used to cook in the selected soup base/broth (each person may select his/her own soup base/broth), then mixed with the preferred sauce (or combination of sauces)
- all items are so freshly cooked that all dishes tasted amazingly delicious! What is more: Nine Spices Hot Pot is a place where “All You Can Eat Within Two Hours” for the same price per person (each person with his/her own hot pot), $25 (vegetarians, vegans, omnivores alike).
Hot pot, also known as steamboat, is a variety of East Asian food, prepared with a simmering pot of stock at the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Typical hot pot dishes include thinly sliced meat, leaf vegetables, mushrooms, wontons, egg dumplings, tofu, and seafood. In this case, there are far more variety: such as carrots, corns, variety of tofu, noodles, pumpkin, turnips, taro, variety of mushrooms and leafy vegetables, fishballs, meatballs, Chinese sausages, rice cake, seaweeds, scallops, shrimps, clams, mussels, thin rice noodles, wood ears, quail eggs, in addition to beef, chicken, pork, lamb, fish, etc. The cooked food is usually eaten with a great variety of dipping sauces. Hot pot meals are usually eaten in the winter during dinner time or during gatherings of family and friends. The modern twist that’s been added is the conveyor belt where customers may pick up any of the items that may seem appealing.
In less then two hours, hubby and I polished off about 20 plates of food items. Wow, I felt terrifically nourished, energized, and not-heavy after the meal at Nine Spices Hot Pot. Check it out! It’s a great place to bring friends and family over hot pots to enjoy great variety of food items and compare what each and every one of you may create out of these cute plates of food items with your choice of sauces. For those of you with children, it’s a great way to introduce your children to the concept of cooking fresh food while having fun.
