Wintery weather makes us want to snuggle up in front of a fire or eat warming, spicy food to keep ourselves warm against the bitter winds and icy rain. There’s nothing better than a spicy hot pot shared with family or friends. You can make your own spicy recipe or simply buy Little Sheep Hot Pot Paste or Zhoujunji Soup Base for Hot & Spicy Hot Pot and Little sheep Hot Pot Mate Condiment Sauce at TANG The Asian Food Emporium in Melbourne. The fun really is all the ingredients you have ready for your family or guests to pop into the hot pot. There’s QQ Lobster Ball, Chinese Royal Kitchen Chicken & Mushroom Dumplings or Pork & Cabbage Dumplings, Hong Men Ju Seafood & Pork Dumplings and many more dumplings, Nan Xiang Vegetable Wonton. This well stocked Asian Grocery Store also carries Shan Shan Bean Threads, Golden Swallow Premium Quality White Fungus, Tofu, Xin Chan Fa frozen Cooked Water Chestnut, Winter Bamboo Shoot and Lotus Root Slices, as well as quality fresh produce.
