|Finish product of my DIY Wei Wei hotpot soup|
I always fall back on a few favourites - Crab Roe Bun, which melts in the mouth once boiled into the soup; Golden Fin that are super fresh and sweet tasting with slivers of big red chilli pounded into the meat; Seafood Sandwich which is tender, value for money and huge. The minced/grated ginger and other hotpot balls were warming to the belly. I'm impressed by the freshness of the squid, fish, prawns and also the hotpot was tasty! I will definitely buy another pack again.For nutritional information:
Overall, Wei Wei Freshly Frozen hotpot is a heartwarming soup with attention to high-quality ingredients + easy to do.
