    Cantonese Hot Pot Restaurant in K Village


    This restaurant has closed.

    Youmiqi (pronounced You-Me-Chi) is one of the newest food trends to open in Bangkok. This Cantonese hot pot restaurant specialises in fresh seafood plucked straight from the tank, which is then prepped and placed into a huge wok that simmers away on your table. With several extremely successful branches in Malaysia, Youmiqi opened up in Bangkok mid-2015 and already is attracting the city’s foodie crowd who want to sample the cooking style of Shunde, a district in Guangdong Province famed for its cuisine.

    This is a fun and lively dining experience with plenty of different flavours and tastes and is a great way to eat when dining as a large group, as the communal atmosphere adds to the occasion.

  • Premium ingredients that go into the central wok at Youmiqi include tiger prawns, grouper, squid, red crab and mud crab, along with a variety of shellfish, fish balls, tofu and slices of beef shank and pork. There are a range of vegetables, herbs and mushrooms added on top. This style of cooking is similar to Sukiyaki, a Japanese style of cooking which is incredibly popular in Bangkok, although the broth here is more delicate and so takes on more of the flavours of the ingredients which makes Shunde-style hot pot even more delicious.

    The not-so-secret reason for the incredible taste is the freshness of the premium seafood at Youmiqi; fish tanks are lined up in the restaurant so they can ensure ingredients are as fresh as possible. Each tank has been specially regulated to provide optimal temperatures for the shrimps, fish and crabs. Served alongside your bowl are two sauces: a classic Cantonese dipping sauce or the spicy and sour variety popular in Thailand.

    Considering the quality of the seafood, prices are very reasonable: from 1,180 baht for a two- to four-person wok, up to 3,800 baht for the six- to eight-person ‘Ultimate Wok’.

    Other dishes available at Youmiqi include a spicy pork and mushroom dish with bold use of chili and ginger which is particularly popular with Thais, and clay pot rice, a classic Cantonese dish which comes with a crispy burnt rice coating on the outside and deliciously rich and salty bacon bits inside. A Cantonese chef from Guangzhou City has been brought in especially to oversee the kitchen and the level of authenticity shines through.

    Youmiqi is located on the second floor of Nihonmachi Complex, traditionally home to Japanese restaurants. It is easy to find behind K Village lifestyle mall on Sukhumvit Soi 26. The closest BTS station is Phrom Phong although you will have to take a taxi or motorbike from the entrance of the soi.
