Enjoying Hotpot at HOT&HOT: Authentic Sichuan Hotpot, Spicy and Numb

Hot&Hot features its authentic Sichuan-style hotpot with spicy and numbing flavour. This unique taste, contributed by Sichuan pepper, distinguishes it from other eastern pot dishes like Japanese sukiyaki.

At HOT&HOT, we make pepper paste and pork bone broth every day. These make sure the soup base is fresh and flavoury.
For those who are not that good at spicy food, we have non-spice options like the tomato soup base and the mushroom soup base. You can try up to 3 soup base flavours at once. So no worries about having one spicy and one not spicy.

Hotpot with Bubble Tea: Only Possible at HOT&HOT!

Next to the hotpot meal, we also have various bubble tea and fruit tea. As a Chinese hotpot restaurant, we made equal efforts to explore unique bubble tea recipes.
Our most popular drinks include match Ice-cream bubble tea, lime passionfruit tea, strawberry Yakult, and sparkling water. They could be a perfect match to reduce the spiciness or an excellent option for the last-round drink.
