If you’ve been in Melbourne for a while you will know that plenty of venues have been popping up that serves hotpot. For those who don’t know what hotpot is, let me give you a brief overview. Basically you get a pot of broth in the middle and once it boils, you chuck in whatever you’d want to eat which could be various meats, fish balls, veggies and noodles. You cook them in your pot, cook it, dip it in whichever sauce you’d like and BAM Bob’s your uncle. Mr D was in charge of picking a hotpot place and we ended up at Da Long Yi Hotpot. Da Long Yi Hotpot is a huge venue, double story and located conveniently on Elizabeth Street.
We got half half broth since half of the group couldn’t handle spice (that’s me if you’re wondering). The non spicy mushroom broth was flavoursome and and the spicy beef broth was delish with a massive kick to it.
There’s a wide selection of meats for you to choose from: pork belly, beef and even fish balls.
Don’t worry, there’s also noodles and veggies to fill you up AND if you needed to be a bit healthier.
Da Long Yi Hotpot is a great place for any number of people in your group. It’s a great place for those who want to pop their hotpot cherry. The food comes out quick, the staff are efficient and the food was damn fine!
