Lau mam (salted fish hotpot)

Lau mam (salted fish hotpot)

“Lau mam” is a southern specialty and an amazing marriage of preserved fish and hot-pot as well. Guests are certain to love it at the first sight due to the eye-catching beauty of large dishes of colourful vegetables and the favour of the broth, made from salted fish that is cooked until its meat and bone are separated, greasy and sweet-smelling.  (May 21, 2017)
