Quirky RED BOWL Sets Contemporary New Style for Traditional Chinese Hot Pot

March 13, 2018

RED BOWL restaurant elevates Chinese hot pot to a stylish new level. For the first time, Beijingers’ favorite comfort food is being served in chic and sleek surroundings that mix raw with refined -- exposed brick walls, recycled timber and stylish street art blending effortlessly with speakeasy-lighting and splashes of bright colors. The menu matches the eclectic “comfort meets contemporary” vibe, combining the best of authentic hot pot dining with innovative twists on classic favorites.

RED BOWL’s buzzy atmosphere is a hot pot celebration – a salute to the Chinese love of sharing great food with any number of old or new friends. Drop-ins can start with custom-brewed ale, creative cocktails, sake or wine at the bar, before rubbing elbows with fellow hot pot aficionados at a hot pot counter with individual burners. Four or more can dine at hot pot tables or larger groups can take over private rooms “Ma” and “Re” with multiple-pot communal tables and their own cooks preparing imaginative set menus.

Throughout, the sophisticated décor blends rustic with chic. The raw building materials -- much reclaimed from demolished houses and construction sites – are accented with moody lighting, red lacquer tableware, brass hot pots and bold contemporary art.  

Decisions, decisions…the feasting begins with selecting one of six flavored broths -- Yuanyang, Spicy Sichuan, Green Pepper and Green Chilli, Tomato and Potato, Beijing Traditional and Wild Mushroom – followed by a choice of noodles – Hand-Cut, Hand-Cut with Spinach, Sichuan Sweet Potato, Glass and Udon – along with dumpling choices from Pork and Cabbage, Prawn and Sweetcorn, Beef and Vegetable. 

Now the real fun starts, as diners select from an extensive menu of ingredients to cook in their pots. Local and imported jet-fresh seafood ranges from Australian Lobster, Canadian Geoduck Clams, and Dalian Abalone. Beef connoisseurs are spoilt for choice from Australian Wagyu Beef Sirloin M9+ to Canada Boneless Short Rib. Exotic meat options include Inner Mongolian Sheep Rib, and Hand-cut Lamb Leg, and an extensive list of fresh vegetables and mushrooms includes Enoki and Matsutake mushrooms, Organic Sweet Corn, Spinach and Lotus Root.

Seasonal ale, specially created for RED BOWL, is custom-brewed in 10 kg kegs in pride of place near the bar.  The spirit of sharing extends to four-liter draft beer towers, as the perfect complement to rich and spicy hot pot flavors.  

RED BOWL is open for dinner daily from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.  On weekends, lunch is available from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.. Hot pot aficionados may enjoy unlimited servings after 9 p.m. for CNY188 per person.

The price is in CNY and includes service charge.  For reservations, please contact us at +86 10 6536 0066, or email beijing.diningreservations@rosewoodhotels.com.
