Hotel Shangri-La has reintroduced Gyakok, a Tibetan Hot Pot, for this winter. Gyakok basically is an assortment of ingredients that are tastefully arranged in a charcoaled steaming Tibetan pot ‘Shangri-La Gyakok’, and is made especially according to the guests’ taste. The broth along with selection of food items comes in a copper pot that has a burner at the bottom with a constant flame for the soup and the various selections to boil. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Typical hot pot dishes that are on offer at Shangri-La includes mushrooms, wontons, egg dumplings, tofu, and seafood, where Shangri-La also gives the twist where you get side dishes like Kimchi salad, garlic cucumber salad, mushroom bok-choy and steam rice.
Gyakok is a dish to be enjoyed with a large group of friends or family. Similarly, hot pot meals are usually eaten in the winter during supper time. To enjoy this bowl of heavenly warmth and satisfaction, guests can visit Hotel Shangri-la in Lazimpat and Shangri-La Village Resort in Pokhara from November 18 to December 31 for lunch and dinner.
