Boiling Point – Taiwanese Hot Pot

Boiling Point is a chain of Taiwanese hot pot restaurants that has come up to Canada from the States. This particular location on Kingsway, next to Sushi Bella, opened up in 2013.

My lunch special came with a bowl of rice and a cold green tea beverage for $10.99. They bring out your mini hot pot nestled in a metal box frame so everything stays nice a toasty.

My hot pot contained napa cabbage, vermicelli noodles, sliced angus beef, enoki mushrooms, tomatoes, firm tofu, tempura, corn, pork meat balls, kamaboko, fried tofu skin, imitation crab stick, green onions, and cilantro.

Wow! Talk about a lot of ingredients! It’s actually a shallower dish than first appears but it was filling.

If your hot pot boils over too much, you can ask one of the servers to put out the flame. They will also come by to refill your soup for you, if necessary.

Overall, the hot pot wasn’t bad. On the other hand, I wasn’t a big fan of the Ice Cream Cubes that they served. I tried the strawberry (which was the best of the trio), matcha, and taro. These cubes are really frozen rock solid and they are difficult to bite through. I suppose with the hot soup, some people might need something this cold. Unfortunately, the size of the cubes are a bit too big to comfortably suck on without getting a brain freeze.
