Xiangcao at Liang Seah Street is a Yunnan Hotpot must-try!

Xiangcao Yunnan Original Ecology Hotpot
Xiangcao Yunnan Original Ecology Hotpot, Xiangcao means Vanilla in Chinese. Their signboard reads Xiangcao, followed by Yunnan Original Ecology Hotpot,  the name of this restaurant is Xiangcao that serves original ecological hotpot from Yunnan China. They are usually very busy on Saturday, and the service is excellent!

I personally enjoyed the Lijiang Baby Cucumbers 丽江小黄瓜 as a starter. Cold dish is an important part of hot pot, because it cools your body down.
Orange Portobello Mushroom
Wa Meat Rolls
The Wa Meat Rolls and Orange Portobello Mushroom are great appetizers to start the meal with too.
I also had the following:
Wagyu beef from Australia for the hotpot
As you may already know, in my previous entry, we explored the goodness of Wagyu beef from Japan. The reason for its high price is due to its genetically predisposed to intense marbling. Australian Wagyu Association is the largest breed association outside Japan. under the Japanese grading systems, the Aussie marble scoring range is 1 to 9 +. It similar to marble pattern, that's why they call it marbling. Anyway, I am glad Yunnan Original Ecology Hotpot gave me this opportunity to talk about the Wagyu Beef from Australia, I enjoyed this hotpot just as much as other Wagyu Beef hotpot.
Nourishing Soup with King Mushroom and Tomato
Portobello mushrooms are large form of the Agaricus bisporus mushrooms. Its meaty texture, firm and yet delicate flavor, makes it a favorite choice. The hotpot is segmented into 4 sections, herbs and spices, King Mushroom slices, tomato and chicken soup. I enjoyed this hotpot very much!
Wild & Fresh Dictyophora indusiata mushroom. This is a very interesting dish that serves Indusiata mushroom. The mushroom is grown commercially and is rich in protein, carbohydrates, and dietary fiber. It contains bioactive compounds, and has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Phallus indusiatus has a recorded history of use in Chinese medicine. I must say this is the first time I ever tasted this particular type of mushroom, its fragrant and crispy in taste.
Oh, the Jianshui Tofu or white Tofu is from Jianshui, Yunnan Province, China, is often served for the hotpot.
Wa Meat Rolls
Xiangcao homemade signature flower biscuits
Their dessert are lovely, the Qu Jing Tsamba Pan-cake and the Xiangcao homemade signature flower biscuits
