Relatively good dimsim from a hot pot specialist Feb 20, 2013
This hotpot specialists served hotpot by night and during the day they serve dimsum as well.
The decor is black and the restaurant is located upstairs which is why I never tried it because I was too lazy to go upstairs.
The rice rolls were presented nicely and they were cut into smaller pieces to make sharing easier and the mini burgers were presented in dinky dishes as shown on the menu.
Steamed rice roll with beef and preserved egg:
Steamed rice roll with beancurd skin crackers and prawn:
The beancurd skin crackers were still crispy and it was good that the oil they used was fresh and did not ruin their nice dish.
The rice roll on the outside held it together nicely and it tasted much nicer with beancurd skin which is a change from dough sticks in the middle.
Steamed pork knuckle in red beancurd sauce:
After I finished the knuckles I used the remaining sauce on the rice rolls and they tasted even nicer.
Beancurd roll in soup:
Steamed pandan flavoured Malaysian cake:
The sweetness was not too sweet so I ended up ordering other one.
Yummy factor: ok
Sweetness levels: just right
MSG levels: slight
Napkins provided: no
Noise levels: slighty noisy
Glass of water provided: tea was provided, but you get charged for it
English Menu: no
Air Conditioning: Yes

慢，慢，同埋慢 (slowest dim sum ever) Jul 22, 2012
Came here for dim sum since some of the dim sum reviews were good. The ground floor had no staff to show us up so we walked upstairs, but there's no one there to greet us, and the other waiters didn't seem to care....
The decor is black (I guess since it's a hot pot restaurant after all). The tableware/cutleries were also all black. So the ambiance didn't fit quite well with yum cha.
The food here is actually not bad. But one main problem here is the SPEED. Unless you like your dim sum to arrive a dish at a time, at a 15-minute interval, I suggest you go somewhere else. We couldn't believe how long we had to wait, so did other tables. Everyone were just sitting here waiting and waiting..... and one dish would arrive. They really need to hire more kitchen staff and servers!!
There's a much better, brighter, faster, a lot more choices, cheaper, dim sum place just next to the Tin Hau MTR and if I'm in the neighborhood for yum cha, I will definitely be going to that one instead.

a cotural experience Feb 22, 2012
My friends and I was stating in Hong Kong for a business trip and our coworker introduced us to a restrount called Hot in a Pot, where my friends and I though could get some yummy troducitional tim som. But was appeared too late because it was seven thirty at night and they only surve tim som in the afternoon from 11am to 4:30.
To our amusenment this restrount surved a completely different style of food at night , which was called hotpot. Our waiter Eric quicklly introduced us briffely about "hotpot" . This specal type of dining "hotpot" is alot like the fondue we sometime enjoy back home in Utah. So what we do is order a soup base of our likeing, and a seliction of raw/uncooked food and put it into the soup and eat it when it's cooked. we were also given a small plate of soy sauce where we are supposted to mix the spices profided for flavering.
But even with the quick introduction our knowage about hotpot is still very limited. So Eric explained to us about some of the soup base they have and we finally decited on the tomato and potato soup base. The soup base was sweet of potato and rich with tomato, as the soup boiled up we can smell the delightfulness of tomato and potato.
That night we ordered ; domestic sliced beef, chicken filet, scallop, fresh shrimp, four scottish clam shrimp dumpling, white carrot and baby cabbage. The domestic sliced beef was tander and simply amazing. The white carrot had soken up alot of the soup and taste extra specal.
It is true when i say everything was speticular.
But we partuclarly loved the way Eric had help us ordered, since there was just the three of us we were worried about rater or not we'd be able to finish so much food. Eric explained to us that we can order some of the things in half and if we still wanted more we can order more later, so that's what we did. the whole dinner came to about 560 HK dollars, and that's just around 70 dollars USA for all that food we ate.
We had a amazing time that evening and would deffintly tell all our friends how fantastic this place is. sadly we weren't given enough time so that we could come back and try the tim som the following afternoon, but we are sure to come back for another taste of awsomeness the next time we come back.
