TIAN WAI TIAN - My BEST Hot Pot Experience

Tian Tian Hot Pot-19.jpg

Exploring other foodie cultures is always a good way to educate and remove any mental barriers on what's possible with your foodie experience.

A visit to Tian Wai Tian was an eye opener for me -- I never thought hot pots could be that awesome.

I was surprised with the high quality and wide variety of ingredients available in the eat-as-much-as-you-want hot pot. Plus, they have a really good selection of drinks and desserts.

When in Taiwan, you must eat in Tian Wai Tian! Check it out...

FRUITS

There's a lot of fresh fruits to choose from, such as oranges, pineapples, kiwis,

watermelon, grapes,

and not-our-usual-fruits like pomegranate.

SEAFOOD, SHELLS, VEGETABLES and BALLS

There's also an extensive selection of shellfish, shrimps, crabs, and different vegetables.

You can also get different types of noodles.

One of our favorites from the available ingredients is the eat-all-you-can sweet mochi balls...

and the mashed seafood meat in bamboo-like containers.

CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF

You can also feast on Australian Rib Eye and Lamb meat -- eat all you can, baby! :)

DRINKS

There's overflowing draft beer available,

drink-all-you-can Coca Cola sodas,

Minute Maid orange, and coffee.

(Tip: Better to just drink water so you can enjoy the hot pot longer without that full feeling from drinking too much.)

SATE SAUCE

Tian Tian Hot Pot-35.jpgOne of the most important components of the hot pot experience is creating your own sate sauce...

Tian Tian Hot Pot-36.jpg
Scoop up different ingredients like onions, leeks, parsley, teriyaki or soy sauce.

Tian Tian Hot Pot-34.jpg
Pour in a generous serving of sate sauce.

Add raw egg yolk.

Top with sesame seeds and a little bit of chili.

Then, mix it all together and pair with your choice of meat or vegetables.

HOT POT SOUP

You can request to have the standard and the chili version of the hot pot soup.

Cook the meat and the vegetables at your own pace and savor each bite.

Thanks to Johnlu for sharing with us their favorite hot pot spot in Taiwan!

DESSERTS

There's also a mouth-watering display of cakes for dessert,

Tian Tian Hot Pot-27.jpgand eat-all-you-can Haagen-Dazs ice cream!

But even with those dessert choices, I just loved munching on the mochi balls with the sweet filling.

(Tip: Cook them in the hot pot for a few minutes and dunk in the sate sauce. :) )

Tian Tian Hot Pot-1.jpg
It was indeed the best hot pot experience for me (and now I'm craving for it). Hopefully someone brings this kind of hot pot dining to Manila....

I'm sold. Overflowing draft beer, here I come :D !!!

There are several branches of Tian Wai Tian here in Taiwan. There are two along Minquan West Road (just get off at Zhong Shan Elementary School Station Exit 2) it's right across the exit.

Another favorite spicy hotpot among locals here is Ma-La Hotpot. I prefer it here because of the better quality of beef :)

there's a relatively good hotpot place in macapagal king one hotpot.

I remember this place---I think it's the same place [only they added a few more selections like overflowing beer]l. When I went there before, I don't think Haagen Daz was eat all you can. I think they have a branch in Taichung too. Oh dear, now I rreeaally want to go back D: Just to eat.

[Hahaha magpapa-tourist visa uli just to food trip!]

Yummmmmmy :( Perfect for the rainy weather D:

Thanks for the comment on this post!
