The idea of serving ice cream in a hotpot may sound as weird as the name itself but ‘Tongue Fun’ is Chinese for ‘successful’. Here, they serve ice cream with smoke billowing from the centre of the hotpot giving it the appearance of an erupting volcano.
Instead, the burning fire is actually dry ice, which creates smoke for visual effect.
The flavours range from common to exotic. There’s chocolate and strawberry along with the other usual suspects. For the more adventurous, there are flavours like X-Milk (super creamy milk) Redbull Vodka, Thai beer and yoghurt with jelly. Or, if you’ve got an appetite for spice, go for the Wasabi flavoured ice cream.
The price varies on each different flavour, starting at B25 for the most common ones, B28 for more creative flavours, and B30 for the most exotic.
A mini set which includes five small scoops goes for B86. If there’s a whole gang of you, you can tuck into a hotpot set, with your choice of six bigger scoops, for B168. Although the visual effect is a major part of the appeal, the taste is even more impressive.And the dry ice keeps your hotpot chilling so you have even more time to enjoy your cold, sweet treat.
