Mushroom hotpot, Ashima Ho Chi Minh

When my husband said his counterpart recommended us to eat mushroom hotpot, my 1st reaction was " Can eat one or not? mushroom steamboat,no no, I still prefer to eat Vietnamese foods" , but last, I still forced to go Ashima mushroom hotpot restaurant and really had no expectations.

Luckily I go otherwise I will miss this interesting and delicious mushroom hotpot. You'll be amazed by how many different kind of mushroom offered on the menu, and it will be overwhelming. If you are 1st time here, you can ask for recommendation from the staff. We choose chicken & Chinese herbs broth, since only two of us, we just ordered beef, veggie and instant noodle (this is good).

After added all ingredients in the mushroom soup, the soup was super super sweet and delicious, this was the best soup I have ever had...

And the dipping sauce was great too...

- The staff recommended us to order " Yellow morel mushroom " and " Tigris Claw mushroom" as she said these are best to accompany with beef which we intended to order...

- Add some mushroom soup to this dipping sauce, yummy yummy....

-My camera run out of battery when i want to take these pictures, no choice, use my phone to take these....
Even mushroom is not your favourite , I still suggest you to give a try. Actually this is something similar to our steamboat here, but you can't get so many different types of mushrooms here. Strongly recommend you to give a try..don't missed it when you visit to HCM...

  6. Reanaclaire, never heard pumpkin porridge steamboat in KL here, for me, I will not try too, I dont really like pumpkin, and I feel full for that porridge steamboat, prefer cleaar broth..

    Mia, did you notice any similar mushroom hotpot shop at your area? if yes, you must go and try, the mushroom (some is wild mushroom) tasted super sweet, very refreshing..
