I have been watching a lot of Hong Kong Cantonese TVB series. Most of them shows families and friends getting together to have steamboat. They will say something that sounds like, “ta pi lor’. I know ta means to do beat or to do something and lor is pot. But what is pi?
The other day, I also ‘ta pi lor’ at home because I was in the Chinese New Year mood after I bought some tangerines. It was an impromptu steamboat dinner. I just boiled some soup with chicken and Chinese white cabbage.
Grab a few things from the market and we have all we need to have an enjoyable meal.
Enjoy ta pi lor, ok?
