Okay, so I’ve got news for you all. Hot Pot on Wardour Street is where it’s at. This cool Chinese restaurant, found in London’s Soho, is such a great choice for those who are looking for something a little different…
I’ve spoken to quite a few people since visiting Hot Pot, and have been surprised that so few have actually tried this unique dining experience. And, if you’re one of them, then make sure to change that asap!
I visited the brand new restaurant on Wednesday evening with a friend and was really impressed with the delicious food, as well as the philosophy behind it. Hot Pot is about bringing people together to enjoy the food and experience.
We started off sat around a large table and chose two warming broths for our pot – my favourite being the Tom Yum. This is then kept simmering on your table with the portable heater. You then choose from the extensive list of ingredients to cook in your pot. Think rib-eye, sliced pork, salmon, squid, fresh vegetables, mixed mushrooms, fried tofu, glass vermicelli noodles…… the list really is endless. There is also an amazing selection of ultimated condiments and sauces – I could have eaten bowls of the sesame sauce!
The experience itself is great fun. I never thought that I’d enjoy cooking my own food in a restaurant so much! Plus one big plus for you all is that the restaurant caters extremely well to those with intolerances and allergies. I found it so easy to eat here gluten-free.
