The Joomak – A Soothing Winter K-Hotpot

Last week, I visited The Joomak at Harbour City again to sample some of their new winter creations. Introduced with a series of warm Korean-style hotpot, there are two hotpot soup bases to choose including a Ginseng Chicken soup and a Vegan Prickly Pear Carbonara soup.

The prickly pear carbonara soup base is basically soy milk colored with prickly pear, not only is it nutrition-packed, it is also made with vegan cheese that makes it perfect for vegetarian. The soup base is very creamy and hearty, not too heavy and of course, very rich in soybean flavor.

The hotpot comes with Hanwoo beef platter and a vegetarian platter, including a big bundle of white fungus over the thinly sliced beef, kimchi cuttlefish and dace fish pastes; kale, pumpkin, purple potato and corn. My favourites are the crunchy crystalline iceplant as well as the soya knot that boils amazingly silky in the soup.

In addition, we opt for a vegan cheese seaweed rice, which you will add into the remaining soup base and cook until it turns risotto-like.

I also loved the deep-fried Korean Ginseng with a hint of bitterness, whilst a soothing cup of turmeric latte is particularly remarkable, made with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger juice and almond milk.
