A hotpot or shabu shabu meal is meant for sharing. As such, your choices must consider the preferences of others dining with you. Right? Not so when you dine in KICHI KICHI inside Hanoi's newly-opened Royal City Mall.
I'm used to seeing sushi & sashimi weaving through the bar on a conveyor belt, ready to be plucked by diners seated around the bar. But here in Kichi Kichi, you get a steaming hotpot in front of you while you choose what gets into your brewing broth.
The choices will draw out either the carnivore or pescetarian in you. Thin slices of prime beef? Or a hot stew of clams, salmon, stinky tofu, shrimps, squid, etc? Throw in those veggies and slurp away!
Kichi Kichi is inside the Royal City in Vincom Plaza Mall. Not sure if it's 3rd or 4th floor. Would love to head back and explore the 7 underground storeys!
