You’d think the practice of dunking meat into boiling soup couldn’t get too elegant and high-falutin’, but this stylish place takes hot pot to the next level and it’s really working for the trendy types we met there. The menu was designed by a French chef, which explains the fresh mushroom soup as a choice of stock. But there’s plenty here for the traditionalist, from coriander/preserved egg to Sichuan chili. The meats are where it gets fancy: fresh fish, prawn, lobster and crab. We tried the prawn and fish, both excellent. The beef section includes US rib eye and pricey Japanese wagyu, gently boiled in its own consomme and as succulent as it should be. Conversely, the local fatty beef was quite tough, possibly because it’s cut thicker than usual. Even the dumplings and meat balls were handmade and unusually meaty and textured.
