Pearl Hotpot

A favourite little hotpot place I like to visit is called Pearl Hotpot (珍珠小火鍋), located in Burnaby. I often go there for lunch after my dentist appointments, or whenever we are in the area. It’s shabu shabu style where each person gets their own pot of soup, instead of one communal pot.

I normally get the “Fresh Fish Pot”, which is more expensive at 18.95CAD. I love seafood~

Fish slices with rice wine poured over. You can ask the server to add sake for more flavour.

Shan usually gets the “Special Pork Shoulder”, which is a steal at 13.95CAD. I love the pork!

Pork shoulder! We coat the slices in egg whites to preserve tenderness and flavour.

Each hotpot comes with an egg, a dish of special dipping sauce, a large place of veggies (among other “extras”) and a choice of rice, udon, noodles or vermicelli. Ice cream is included as dessert, but I am usually too full by then. Oh, and also a drink! I normally get fruit tea.

I saw this snarky graffiti behind the girl’s washroom door before we left. It’s ironic because fish and pork is what we always order when we’re here:

“Pig + Fish = Friends, Not Food!”
(But these friends are just so delicious!)

In the past, I didn’t always like hotpot. But this is one little hotpot place I’ve enjoyed time and time again!
