Roast Pot, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

HOT POT – I love! I don’t have it often enough here in Sydney, as I don’t find a lot of places do good hot pot – it shouldn’t be hard right? Boil some broth, get some good meat, vegetables and voila. I remember going to one a few years ago now, it wasn’t great but it did cost me an arm and a leg!

We ordered two different types of broth, their signature broth (clear broth with various vegetables and tofu) and a Sichuan broth (very spice-y and very tasty). Love the Sichuan broth, very spice-y indeed.

Left the ordering to M again, all I wanted was beef and LOTS OF IT! So we got three different types of beef, first, fresh local premium sliced beef…

Angus premium beef… I thought the local sliced beef was much more tender and tasty.

Beef shanks which was a little crunchy and tender.

You can never go wrong with beef balls.

Some pork, which was a little on the fatty side but yum.

Fried bean curd skin, it was crunchy a little bland, don’t dip it too long in the broth or it will be ultra-soggy.

Winter melon which took a while to cook but I’m a sucker for winter melon.

We had another serving of beef which I didn’t take a photo off but thought we did well – considering there were only three girls! Yes – we can eat!

Thanks again M, thoroughly enjoyed the food, service was friendly and warm and who doesn’t like hot pot, especially in winter. I am looking forward to having more hot pot sessions next time I visit!
