For dinner tonight, I, Tj, and my sister initially intended to eat at Shakey’s in Pearl Drive, Fairview. However, Minppy Japanese Hot Pot caught our eye. Little did we know that we were in for a filling dinner. Hot pots are very cool, and Minppy’s no exception. Just choose the type of soup you want, choose your meats, choose your veggies, throw them into the pot of soup, then let everything boil until it’s cooked.
At Minppy, we chose the eat-all-you-can option, which went for P498 a person and allowed us to, well, eat everything that we can. The price also includes endless drinks. We chose sukiyaki and miso for the soups, and they were served in a divided pot.
The pork, chicken balls (chicken that has been rolled into balls, I mean), slices of beef, tofu, and squid soon followed, as well as a hefty array of vegetables, such as corn, pechay, cabbage, Baguio beans, onions, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower, among others. At first, we thought the meat was pretty meager, given that the pork and beef were sliced quite thinly. Boy, were we wrong.
We were also given a free taste of tempura and gyoza. I don’t eat shrimp, but I was told the tempura was nice. The gyoza was lovely, but then again, I’ve rarely met gyoza I didn’t like.
We managed to do quite well with the food even though there were only three of us. We even asked for more beef, cabbage, and broccoli, and were given extra cauliflower. With one more person, I think we would’ve wiped out the contents of the pot.
Dinner was a few hours ago, but we’re still stuffed–always a sign of a great meal.
