18th Street Hot Pot is a must-try for Adelaideans looking for a new favourite hot pot spot.
You’ll walk in from Gouger Street to a modern and sophisticated fit-out. Think exposed brick, black and white subway tiles and a subtle oriental theme is woven throughout.
The restaurant is well-organised, complete with signage outlining how it all works, which is useful, considering the folks at 18th Street are serving hot pot slightly differently.
18th Street has over 80 fresh ingredients to choose from. You can enjoy the usual hot pot favourites, or if you’re feeling brave, a range of somewhat unfamiliar ingredients, including duck blood, fish ball with roe, or winter melon are also available.
An option to choose one of three broth types – mild, medium and hot, allows for a fully personalised experience. If you’re like me and can’t handle heat, not to worry! The mild option has been created with us in mind, and you won’t sacrifice any of the sensational flavours. For those who can take it, the more fiery options are said to be next-level.
Visit 18th Street Hot Pot in the centre of Chinatown, at 2/94-96 Gouger St, Adelaide.
Good news for those stuck in quarantine, too: 18th Street is available on Foodhub or Menulog, so you can enjoy the full range from the comfort of your home. For more information, visit their website.
