海底捞

On the eve of our ADC Shanghai‘s grand opening party, everyone stayed back to tie up loose ends so that we wouldn’t have funky surprises on the day itself – June 10, 2011. After that, we headed out for a 海底捞 (directly translated as scouring the seabed) dinner, which is really a hotpot dinner, near our office. Yes, we’re spoilt for choices.

Miya is the new proud owner of a Ricoh GR Digital camera (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/ricohgrd/). She carries it in a pouch everywhere she goes, capturing everything that turns up on her path ^_^

Leave it to these guys to order the best food. Jay (Industrial Designer) on the left just joined the team last week when I was away in Beijing.

I couldn't decide if I liked peanut better or sesame, so I got them both. You dip the meats and veges cooked in the hotpot in these sauces ... yummy! I sprinkled my peanut sauce with beef bits and spring onion, and the sesame sauce with ground peanut. Don't ask why, I don't know!

Left: clear soup. Right: numbing spicy hot soup.

The spread! We finished everything by the way ... in fact, we added more mutton later, which I didn't take because I was already too full!

These ain't worms, just disgustingly delicious mashed prawn meat squeezed from a tube.

This is 功夫拉面 (kungfu ramen)? Not sure what it's called, but it was fascinating watching him perform that stunt. Also watching was Xu Ning, first day at work, in charge of CMF with Colin.

The dinner ended with these golden crisps ... Popcorn! Not quite one who adores popcorn, it was incredible that I loved these so much that I thought it must be the best dish of the evening. Okay, I confess, I'm a junk (food) head.
