How to enjoy the hot-pot

After the hot pot is boiled, add the crab and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes.
The best timing to enjoy the crab meat is when it becomes fluffy and the contrast of the red and white becomes clear.

Enjoy it by adding the hot-pot soup, PONZU sauce, and others by preference.

There is also a slight portion of crab tomalley for you to try. You may try this alone or add it into your bowl (not into the hot-pot) for another special taste.

If you order more than 2 sets of hot-pots, the ingredients will be placed together to share. One plate may include ingredients up to 4 people)
Please note that the hot-pot is a share type.(Not an individual hot-pot style.)

Please place the crab shells into the white pot.
