Travel | 知田 Hot Pot, Taipei, Taiwan
Located near Zhongshan MRT, on the basement level of a department store, 知田 serves simple hot pot in a food court setting. My aunt took us here, because she loved the taste of their soup base, which really makes or break a hot pot restaurant. I ended up drinking two pots worth of soup, eating all the seafood and meat, and drinking four cups of refillable sweet tea.
So did I like it? Yes. Obviously.
