Toronto is getting its first hot pot tower stacked on top of a bubble tea
People in Toronto love hot pot and bubble tea, so why not just stack them right on top of each other?
It's something that's never quite been seen before in Toronto's long list of legendary food mashups.
The creation stacks a tray full of spicy hot pot with toppings like shrimp, beef and quail egg on top of a massive fruit tea, and costs $20.
The treat promises not only to be Insta-worthy, but also according to Liuyishou "a perfect combo for the customers in the night market."
It's true that this invention masters something that can be very hard to achieve in the food festival world: a truly epic dish that you can still carry around with you relatively easily while walking around and checking everything out.
"When we go to the night market, it is very inconvenient to have a drink on one hand and food on the other hand," a rep for Liuyishou tells blogTO.
"We thought about how to allow guests to eat while walking, and passing the CN tower has giving Liuyishou's owner inspiration."
That's because the straw for the tea goes right through the hot pot tray, meaning you can seamlessly enjoy both with just one hand. All we can hope is that the hot pot doesn't heat up the tea too much.
