Ready to Try Hot Pot Meals? Here’s a Quick Guide to Broths

If you are looking for a unique dining experience, you’ll find it at Rokaru Shabu Shabu. This staple of Pearl City serves up the best hot pots using the freshest vegetables, grass-fed meats, and mouth-watering broths. As the heart of this communal meal, broths give the dish a punch of flavor in every bite. Here’s a bit more information about this tasty broth and why it's so vital to the hot pot. 

What Are Broths & How Are They Used?

Broths are used as the main ingredient to cook the meat and vegetables you’ll get with your hot pot. They are usually chicken or beef based, although sometimes pork is used. The broth is then enhanced by a wide variety of spices, sauces, and oils to give each one a unique flavor.

What Are the Popular Broth Options?

1. Japanese Curry

Part curry, part broth, this premium option will delight your taste buds. A bit on the spicier end of the heat spectrum, you’ll find a unique blend of vegetables, onions, and potatoes as the base. 

2. Miso Kim Chee

Dashi combined with kimchee and miso is the heart of this tasty option. With a bit of miso, Hawaii chili peppers, and chili oil, you get a mouth full of flavor in every bite.

3. Spicy Goma

More of a savory, creamier option, Goma features pork and chicken as the base. With miso sauce, sesame sauce, and soy mixed in, this broth packs a big dash of flavor.

Regardless of what you choose, you’ll have a delicious meal that is sure to please.
