What are you doing this Christmas? Like many others -nothing, or a simple dinner with your core bubble/family. Well, international hot pot chain Liuyishou has a solution to help wash away those winter blahs.
Liuyishou is officially the first hot pot restaurant to launch their very own line of hot pot soup bases. Packages of concentrated soup stock that you can grab and go, to replicate their hot pot experience in the safety and comfort of your own home. Simply add water and boil over a burner or electric stove; and viola, hot pot at home done easy.
This product comes at a time when people need more and more different activities to do at home, in their bubble. And/or they are aching for the restaurant experience but can’t necessarily go out to get it. So by picking up a sachet of one of their 5 different bases from any of the 100 supermarkets that they are now on the shelves of, you can bring their gourmet hotpot experience home in this easy dinner idea.
Available at T&T or H-Mart, pick from traditional, spicy, tomato, vegetarian, of chilli. Each stock is crafted from their traditional recipes, fusing natural ingredients with modern technology, all fully produced in Canada. The latter is a pride point that no other hot pot chain can claim.
In celebration of the release of their new soup bases at all H-Mart locations in Greater Vancouver, there is a limited time offer to get you shopping. If you purchase a package of Liuyishou’s Hotpot Soup Base marked with a sticker reading, “Surprise Inside” you will be gifted either a VIP card or a $10 voucher. Both the card and the voucher are accepted for dine in at any of the eight Liuyishou locations across Canada.
The Traditional Soup Base uses 100% Canadian beef tallow and over 20 natural spices and seasonings, including premium chili and sichuan peppercorn. The Spicy Soup Base is the same, but with more heat. The Tomato Soup Base is known as the only tomato hotpot base made from fresh tomatoes in the Canadian market. The Vegetarian Soup Base uses real vegetable oil, which helps to counterbalance the spiciness added in the soup. However, if you want the heat then go for the Chili Pot Seasoning which too is made with real vegetable oil, alongside and dozens of other natural ingredients.
And if you are looking to make your hotpot at home experience even easier, and even more fool proof, visit Liuyishou’s hot pot store within Burnaby’s Crystal Mall. There, you can buy any of their hotpot ingredients raw/uncooked and a la carte. Perfectly sectioned amounts of thinly sliced lamb and beef, tubs of paste to scoop and ball up; and organ meat favourites like blood and tripe. All of which packaged and ready to be displayed and dipped like they do at the restaurant.
But for those who are comfortable, and decide to venture out to an actual Liuyishou location you can indulge in a new Christmas tradition. From December 25, 26, 29, 30, and 31 if you spend over $120 at Liuyishou, you get a free 2lb lobster for dine-in or take-out.
