08 Apr David’s Hot Pot, Doncaster East
David’s Hot Pot arrived in Melbourne in 2017 and expanded to Doncaster East and Point Cook last year. Sichuan hotpot is the name of the game here. There are a variety of soup bases, which can be enjoyed as a single pot, or in up to 3 choices in the ‘Benz pot’ for variety. We tried the Signature Spicy Beef Tallow (mild spice level, recommended to us as first-timers to David’s) and the gentler Dried Fish Maw and Chicken Soup. Cans of sesame oil (not soft drink!) were provided on the table, to be combined with ingredients collected at the sauce station. Apart from their large selection of meat, seafood, noodles and vegetables, there are also braised dishes and sweet snacks that can be enjoyed on the side. Slices of watermelon were available on top of the sauce station, to cool down the palate afterwards.
