Steamboat fans rejoice – now you can enjoy a crackling hotpot in Perth’s inner city suburb of Northbridge. This Asian staple traditionally involves cooking a variety of meats and vegetables in a simmering brew of stock directly at your table and then dipped with multiple sauces. At XCY Hotpot, the leg work is done for you and you can choose from an array of steamingly delicious pots with your choice of meat, seafood, vegetables and noodles with a flavour of your choice. We recommend the shredded spicy beef salad or the beef tripe with chilli oil, but even with the abundance of choices here, it’s hard to go wrong. You’ll just want to try everything. So make your way down to William Street in Northbridge and give it a try! You won’t be disappointed.
Nestled in the heart of it all, Perth’s XCY Hotpot is a mecca for Chinese hotpot-loving foodies looking to fill their boots with steaming bowls of goodness for lunch or dinner. Simple and unassuming to some, those in the know are fully aware of just how good the fare coming out of this Northbridge restaurant is. Located a stone’s throw from the Swan River, Hyde Park and NIB Stadium, amidst a ferry of bars and nightspots, XCY Hotpot is the ideal choice to fill up before a night of revelry or catching the game.
As for the menu, well, from the name we’re sure you get the picture that XCY Hotpot knows what it’s doing when it comes to serving delectable, piping hot bowls, though that’s not all on offer here. If you’re a fan of sharing loads of small plates and trying everything, get around the five spiced chicken feet (for those adventurous among us), fried spring rolls, pickled bamboo shoots with lashings of chilli oil, pork tripe with chilli and the spiced beef brine. Though if a true blue Chinese hotpot is what you’re after, you’ve got a choice of meat and seafood like clams, mussels, quail eggs, pork, squid and vegetables ranging from oyster mushrooms to tofu puffs and bok choy among others. So do yourself a favour and reserve a spot at XCY Hotpot on William Street in Northbridge – it’s well worth it, trust us.
