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!
