Around Taipei(and most of Taiwan) the hot pot restaurant is almost as common as a McDonalds. Regardless of where you are on the island, there is bound to be a hot pot restaurant nearby. Since there are so many restaurants, trying to stand out from the crowd can be a fruitless exercise that doesn’t always work.
Enter 兩餐韓國年糕火鍋, translated as two bowls Korean rice cake hot pot restaurant, located in Ximending in Taipei. The concept here is for NT 299(~$9.90 USD), eaters can take on two disparate Korean cuisines for one low low all you can eat price.
Eaters are welcome to select from a dazzling array of food items such as rice cakes, Korean ramen, veggie, meats and most importantly, Korean sauces. These things all come together to form a hot pot of sorts, which very closely mimics the look and feel of the Korean dish known as Budae-jjiga that you can find at any Korean restaurant here in the United States. The added cream cheese around the side is the bonus here, akin to finding another $20 in your jacket pocket. Winners all around.
