The “ber” months are in full swing and the holidays are just around the corner. This means it’s starting to become sweater weather and I’m definitely craving soups more. I’m so happy to say that I may have just found my new go to spot for hot pot soup via Rolling Skies Kitchen. Located in Redondo Beach; is this new takeout only spot specializing in Malatang Hot Pot.
For those unfamiliar with Malatang; it is a popular street food in China and is known as a spicy hot pot. Here at Rolling Skies Kitchen one can customize their Malatang Hot Pot. They’ve got five different bases (classic bone broth, tangy tomato, spicy red chili, creamy Tom yum and land dried). One can choose their spice level (mild, medium or spicy) and up to 3 proteins (choice of lamb, beef, chicken, pork belly, fish fillet, spam, meatballs, fish balls with roe, fish cake, combo meatballs with imitation crab and quail eggs.) There are also options to add more protein or veggies.
Aside from hot pot; Rolling Skies offers fried rice, noodles, snacks, desserts and handcrafted drinks!
For my first visit here I chose to get the Classic Bone Broth Malatang Hot Pot with chicken, beef and quail eggs. I also got a side of popcorn chicken.
I was super impressed with the Classic Bone Broth Malatang. The hot pot was packed with ingredients and flavor. The meats were tender and the veggies were well cooked. It was so savory and tasty. It’s definitely perfect for chilly nights but I would eat this in any type of weather because it so good!
The Popcorn Chicken was also quite tasty! I loved the popcorn chicken. Tasty batter and tender chicken for the win. My only regret was not getting one of their handcrafted bobas to pair with this snack.
I am a fan of Rolling Skies Kitchen and am excited to see them open up in the South Bay! I definitely want to visit this place again and looking forward to trying the other hot pot soups and other offerings.
