Chongqing Hotpot is more than just a meal. It’s a celebration of life.

Chongqing is the largest city in southwest China and it is mostly known for its hotpot with boiling spicy soup. Having an estimate of 50,000 hotpot eateries in the city, Chongqing is aptly dubbed as “China’s Hotpot City”.

With the steady increase in the number of Chinese tourists here in Cebu, the opening of Long Men Hot Pot is a welcome addition to the existing Chinese restaurants in the city.


How to enjoy Long Men Chongqing hotpot

First, choose a soup base: a clear broth, spicy chilli oil broth, or half and half.

Then, from the sauce bar, create a dipping sauce to your liking.

Next, enjoy choosing an array of ingredients from their menu: meat slices, vegetables, meatballs, etc. Throw them in the soup, wait for them to cook and yank them off from the broth when they’re done and dip it into a bowl of your mixed sauce.

Typical Chongqing hotpots have very spicy soup. For this experience though, we opted for Bone and Spicy soup, half and half. We then ordered generous plates of meat to add to our soup base Tender Beef, Sliced Pork, Thin Sliced Pork Belly, Juicy Beef Balls, and Parsley Meatballs.

To add fun to our hotpot party, we also ordered Duck Intestines, Lucky Dumplings, Quail Eggs and Homemade tofu.

We finished off our meal with a few of their sweet treats: Coconut Jelly, Crispy Durian and Fried Stuff Taro.

Instead of getting a fruit shake or a regular soda, I’d also recommend for you to try Wang Laoji. It’s a widely known herbal tea drink in China and it is said to be good at clearing the heat off of our bodies. So, it’s a suitable drink when you’re eating spicy food.

Long Men Hotpot Menu

Long Men offers six (6) soup bases: Whole Spicy Soup, Tomato & Spicy, Vegetable and Spicy, Bone & Spicy, Mushroom & Spicy and Plain Soup.

And you can choose from a variety of ingredients to add into your choice of steaming soup. If you’re feeling brave and adventurous, choose the more exotic add-ons like Pig’s kidney, Goose intestine, Ox gastric wall, Ox artery, Duck web, Duck tongue and Pig brain.

Hotpot isn’t just a meal. Hotpot is a slow food experience best shared with family and friends. It’s a time for interaction and an opportunity to socialize: celebrating a birthday or an anniversary, an important career milestone, doing business or just any simple excuse to bond with your loved ones over food. So, take your time. Savor the explosion of flavours from the steamy broth and enjoy the hot pot experience!
