Red alert, hotpot fans! The Korean wave has swept through Ipoh once again, with the introduction of Saranghae Kimchi Steamboat by Kinta Riverfront Hotel & Suites.

As you know, the usual steamboat fare comes with clear broth and tomyam soup base. Well, the chefs at Kinta Riverfront Hotel have given traditional steamboat (or hotpot) a twist by replacing tomyam with kimchi soup. However, tomyam is still available upon request, so don’t you worry, tomyam fans.

Although both tomyam and kimchi are savoury with a dash of spiciness mixed with sourish tang that leave a lasting impression on your palate, both have their distinctive flavour.

Having tried both, it’s not easy to say which is my preference. Perhaps it depends on my mood, or company. If the kimchi soup is not adequately spicy, there is kimchi sauce to accompany your meal, bringing the level of spiciness up, up, up and up!
