Pork Spare Ribs with Bitter Melon Hot Pot
This traditional Chinese dish combines unexpected ingredients such as bitter melon and fermented black bean with savory stir fried pork spare ribs.  The spare rib is cut up into (bone-in) bite size pieces and cooked until it is almost falling off the bones.  For those of you not familiar with bitter melon, it is considered a fruit.  This fruit’s flesh is crunchy and watery in texture like a cucumber.  The bitter taste can be off putting for those trying it for the first time, not unlike beer!  But paired with the right protein, it can be surprisingly delicious.  The fusion of inspired flavors makes this dish a one-of-a-kind treat for your palate, and is a unique and memorable dish.  We scoop everything into a metal hot pot and put over medium heat.  The pot is lined with lettuce to avoid the all the goodness from sticking to the bottom.  Bring the hot pot to a boil and it will be served sizzling & steaming HOT!

Wall Special: Eggplant with Chinese Sausage Hot Pot

Wall Special:  Eggplant with Chinese Sausage Hot Pot 
ACE would like to introduce a popular hot pot dish that is only from our wall specials, Eggplant with Chinese Sausage Hot Pot. We start by selecting purple Chinese eggplants, which tend to hold up better in the cooking process.  They are trimmed, julienne, and then soaked in water with a dash of salt.  This "degorging" process will extract the bitterness from the eggplant & help soften the spongy texture for better absorbency.  The eggplant is then stir fried with minced garlic until flavors are infused together then we toss in the green & yellow onions & lastly, the Chinese sausage.  What is Chinese sausage or “lap chong - 臘腸”?  It is a dried, hard sausage usually made from pork and a high content of fat. It is normally smoked, sweetened, and seasoned with rose water, rice wine and soy sauce.  Back to the dish, once the eggplant reaches the perfect the texture, we scoop everything into a metal hot pot and put over medium heat.  The pot is lined with lettuce to avoid the all the goodness from sticking to the bottom.  Bring the hot pot to a boil and it will be served sizzling & steaming HOT!

Beef with Double Mushrooms
Beef with mushrooms is already a delicious combination to begin with but when you add Chinese flavors into the mix and use two kinds of mushrooms (Shiitake -black mushrooms & white mushrooms), it becomes awesome!  The marinade which combines flavors such as soy sauce and oyster sauce is also used as the sauce for this dish.  Stir fry all the ingredients and enjoy!

This dish is also known as the Eight Treasures, since there are eight ingredients that make up this dish:  black mushrooms, squid, shrimp, chicken, beef, fried tofu, green onions, and white onions.  We flash fry the ingredients in the hot wok.  Combine with the brown savory sauce, we scoop everything into a metal hot pot and put over medium heat.  The pot is lined with lettuce to avoid the all the goodness from sticking to the bottom.  Bring the hot pot to a boil and it will be served sizzling & steaming HOT!  Great to keep the AZ winter chill off.
