SUPPA (十下火鍋) – Nostalgia-Themed Hotpot Restaurant in Hong Kong
[HONG KONG] I arrived in Hong Kong just a day before Super Typhoon Mangkhut struck. There was a slight chill in the air, so hotpot was the best option for dinner. Our Hong Kong friend brought us to Suppa (十下火鍋), a nostalgia-themed hotpot restaurant in Hong Kong.
If hotpot is all about communal dining and the fostering of family spirit, SUPPA nails it. Once you step into the restaurant, you will be transported back to the 80s. The ceiling rocks a shade of turquoise that’s commonly used in the past, and the space is filled with round tables, mismatched chairs, and even a box refrigerator. As gimmicky as it may sound, this place is undeniably charming.
SUPPA does not have a huge menu, but we gotta love the selection of soup bases. Popular options include the fish maw and chicken broth, tomato and fish broth, and lobster broth.. I went for the safer option – mala broth and tofu pork broth. Once you have placed your order, the waitress pushes a trolley full of sauces around the room so that diners can concoct their own sauces.
The menu is only printed in Chinese, so if you have a hard time reading it, just go for their set meals, you can’t go wrong. Our friend ordered the house-made assorted meatballs (HK$96), thick-sliced Chinese beef (HK$178), fatty US Angus ($158/small), crabmeat dumplings (HK$82), pork collar and more. We also had spam, minced shrimp with yolk, and fish balls marinated in orange peel. Judging by how fresh the ingredients looked, I was very sure that it was going to be a good meal. My photos don’t do justice to the food, but I enjoyed every bit of it!
If you want to have a different hotpot experience, Suppa is the place to visit. The decor, soup bases, and ingredients are vastly different from the usual hotpot places that we often visit. The space is really comfortable, so you can have a good catch-up over a great hotpot! Don’t expect much of a service here though, and they are really strict with the 1.5 hours dining period. But they have all the rights to limit the dining sessions because tables are so limited and Suppa is really popular. So make sure to make a reservation!
