Boiling Point

Where did I eat?

Boiling Point 5276 Kingsway in Burnaby.

What do they specialize in?

Taiwanese personal sized hot pots.

What was the vibe?

I was invited here for a ChineseBites blogger dinner to sample their menu of hot pots.

What did I order?

Old Time Delight Black Tea with Pearls

  • I really enjoyed the old time delight black tea. It had a hint of floral flavour to it and a slight sweetness.
  • I thought this was a good pairing with all of the hot soup and would order it again.

Spicy Fermented Tofu

  • I was brave enough to at least try the stinky tofu, but I found it really disgusting. This isn’t any fault of the restaurant, I just can’t get over the pungent smell of the dish.

Japanese Miso – cabbage, udon, sliced pork, enoki mushrooms, fish balls, crab, tofu, egg, and green onion

  • This was my favourite hot pot of the night because I loved both the broth and the fillings
  • The miso broth was rich and flavourful and something I wouldn’t get sick of if I had a full bowl of it.
  • There was a good meat to veggie ratio of fillings and I liked how the udon noodles came in it.

Korean Kimchi – cabbage, vermicelli, sliced pork, enoki mushroom, egg, kimchi, tofu, fish balls, imitation crab

  • This was my other favourite of the night because the broth was so flavourful and slightly spicy.

Snow Cube

  • These desserts are like little popsicles in cube form and they come in several different flavours
  • I found the strawberry one to be too artificial tasting, but the milk tea one was delicious

Disclosure: I did not pay for my meal.

Final Thoughts?

I enjoyed the hot pots at Boiling Point and I would definitely come back on a cold rainy day for the miso or kimchi pot.
