Regent's Mihan Honke offers hot pot treat

In the chill of winter, nothing is better than chowing down on steamy hot pot with a few good friends. Providing a twist to the usual hot pot, Mihan Honke, Grand Formosa Regent Taipei's trophy Japanese restaurant located on level B3, has a special Japanese Hot Pot Collection this November with Kaki Nabe from Hiroshima and Ishigari Nabe from Hokkaido of Japan. Come and savor how luscious oysters and succulent salmon and the classic miso win over your taste buds.
Kaki Nabe is also known as dote nabe because of its unique "wall" of miso. The proper Kaki Nabe is made by spreading miso evenly around the inside wall of the pot, which looks quite similar to an earth embankment, or "dote" in Japanese.
Originating from Hiroshima, which is the home of luscious oysters, it is only natural that this delicious seafood is the main ingredient in the Kaki Nabe. The oysters chosen for this nabe at Mihan Honke are sweet and juicy with no fishiness and are perfect for hot pot cuisine. As for the wall of miso, the chef has chosen the more aromatic red miso mixed with the more brackish white miso so that no extra dipping sauce is needed. The Kaki Nabe Set at NT$1,080 comes with Chef's Special Appetizer, Japanese Style Salad, Canadian Fresh Oyster & Seasonal Seafood Hot Pot, Udon Noodles, Fresh Fruit and Dessert.
The Ishikari Nabe is also known as salmon hot pot. Originating from the poor fishermen of Hokkaido, its primitive form was a simple pot of fresh salmon with vegetables and salt. Three hundred years later, the popularity of the pot spread from the region of Ishigari, which is how its name came about. Later on, Japanese residents on the main island added miso to the pot, giving it more flavor. The salmon used at Mihan Honke naturally comes from the abundant seas of Hokkaido and are absolutely succulent and tender to the point that it melts in your mouth. In the making of the broth, top quality miso, sake, seaweed, dried fish, and salmon head plus just a dash of butter is used for a fragrant soup base. The Ishikari Nabe Set, also NT$1,080, has Chef's Special Appetizer, Japanese Style Salad, Fresh Salmon & Japanese Style Pork Hot Pot, Japanese Rice Noodles, Fresh Fruit and Dessert.
