Last year, Sugared & Spiced kicked off the hot pot season with Qimin Organic Hot Pot (still a lovely spot to visit), and this year, it all started with Mo-Mo Paradise. Originally from Tokyo, this hot pot chain now has around 100 branches in Japan, Taiwan and Thailand, and its Shanghai branch just opened earlier this year. For 118~128 RMB (lunch) and 138~150 RMB (dinner), they offer all-you-can-eat selections of high quality meats and organic vegetables. Clean interior, excellent service, no fuss.
How to enjoy your pot?
The appetizer plate consists of four daintily put together small bites.
Mo-Mo Paradise offers four broth choices: sukiyaki, shabu shabu, spicy miso, and curry. The most popular choice is the sukiyaki broth, a sweet and savory combination of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin (a rice wine with a 40~50% sugar content).

Please note that this is an arranged tasting, so my experience is possibly more positive than a regular visit.
Not much needs to be explained about Shaburi 紗舞縭極品集, the pictures say it all. Apologies for the confusion in pricing – I went with a frequent patron of this restaurant who took care of all the ordering, and he switched around some of the sets so I couldn’t get the exact prices.
Sashimi salad (comes with the set)
U.S. prime boneless short rib with beautiful marbling. A very happy sight indeed.

Next, seafood so fresh that parts of the platter were still squirming as they arrived at our table. Exciting for some, but perhaps not so ideal for the faint-hearted.
Assorted seafood, ??? NTD (I’m guessing around 2,500 NTD)
