Ok my mum and I have been here like a gazillion times, because i reeeeally like eating the pork bones hot pot here. It's a full house tonight and so we stand out in the cold for 20min looking at all the other people eating waiting for a table. Anyways we finally get a seat and straight away we order the pork bones hot pot. The side dishes come but strangely they don't give us water.


panchan (side dishes)

The hot pot comes not long after that yet we are still without water, chopsticks or rice...


Pork bones and potato hot pot


Take 2: SEE ALL THE STEAM COMING OFF IT!!?!


Take 3: I must apologise for my crap photography skills ><
Take 4: ready to meet its end in my mouth

The pork is fatty and tender, nearly falling off the bone. Even when mum and I are full and groaning we're still swishing the laden around hoping to find bits of stray meat.

The service tonight is really crap tonight, with my mum going in search of chopsticks herself. We then ring the service bell thing three times in an attempt to get some water but no one comes. We flag at one of the waiters for our rice and water and they bring the water but no cups. The cups and rice take another two callings to get here. Nevertheless i still love the food at this place and will definitely continue coming back!
