Fresh seafood bubbles below the surface

It’s 2017, and the F&B industry remains ever innovative. The latest bold creation to enter the food scene: ice hotpot. The Mount Fuji Icy Hotpot ($28 per person) is soba restaurant Nadai Fujisoba Ni-Hachi’s refreshing approach to the traditional hotpot dish. Like the Japanese snow-capped volcano it throws quirky reference to, the dish conceals a formidable presence beneath the surface—a bed of fresh premium seafood hidden under a mound of ice.  

The ice keeps the seafood and hotpot ingredients below to keep it at the peak (pun intended) of freshness, but then melts into a delightful rich chicken and seafood stock that was carefully broiled for hours prior. Once melted, the broth is ready for you to cook the ingredients in the way you’re used to.

As for the ingredients, you can look forward to an international menu of Argentinian aka ebi (red shrimps), Norwegion salmon, New Zealand mussels, and snow crab from Greenland. Make a reservation from now through Nov 30 and you’ll even get to enjoy a snow crab leg per person, on the house.

Nadai Fujisoba Ni-Hachi is open daily from 11am-10pm at 100 Tras Street, #03-14. More info here
