For the past few days it’s been difficult to have the sun shining when mother nature is providing heavy rains and unnatural darkness of the afternoon. So what better way to ignore the hash raindrops is heading down to CQL Mini Pot Burwood (117 Burwood Rd Burwood, NSW).
When it comes to hot pot your choices are usually sharing the same large pot amongst several people and it’s always difficult whether to have spicy or basic chicken soup as a base. But behold CQL Mini Pot have made things much easier by serving miniature individual pots. How incredibly clever is that!
It’s nice change without having someone stealing your food. At the same time it’s a lovely concept having everyone together on the same table cooking, drinking, eating and catching up for a few hours. And did I mention it’s a buffet? ALL YOU CAN EAT! For the price of ($29.90 Per Person) Crazy!
A wide selection of frozen fish balls, tofu balls, taro balls, seafood sticks, dumpling and dumpling filled with fish roe.
The other side of the freezer had two selections of frozen thinly sliced curled meat- beef and lamb. Amazed how fast it cooks within seconds.
Alongside a variety of sauces to try or even get messy and create your own.
If you stroll down the other end of the restaurant there is a never ending aisle of fresh vegetables, seafood such as prawns, mussels and fish fillet pieces, handmade noodles, eggs and tofu.
You’ll be going back and forth a few times for glorious unlimited supply of food.
This is the non chilly chicken soup pot served in chicken soup base filled with tofu fish balls, prawn balls and mini dumplings.
For the chili lovers out there this one is for you. Just look how red the soup base is. It’s extremely chili without a doubt!
Best part of this buffet is it includes a mixture of desserts and freshly cut fruits. The sweet potato soup such a traditional favourite in Hong Kong. It sure to warm even the coolest of days.
The rice wine soup has been always a Chinese classic for as long as I can remember. What appeals for me is usually served with the sweet sticky rice balls and the alcohol taste gets stronger as you continue to consume it.
Fascinated at some of their Chinese traditional decor.
