All you can eat hotpot at Hotpot City, Bankstown

Star Wars sauce station May the Sauce Be with You at Hotpot City in Bankstown

Winter time is hotpot time. If you've never had hotpot, you've not had the pleasure of huddling around a cavernous bowl of steaming soup. It's this soup that is used to cook an endless assortment of meats, fish balls, vegetables, noodles and more.

Most hotpot places are a la carte but Hotpot City in Bankstown lets you eat as much as you can from a buffet selection for $35 (only $19 for lunch Monday to Friday).

Everyone gets their own hotpot which means no need to fight over the last fish ball. Choose from 11 soup bases, running from tom yum to kimchi to oxtail with herbs. Don't worry. They have a classic chicken soup too. Everyone gets their own ceramic hot plate so you can keep your soup at just the right temperature for you.

The hotpot buffet range is extensive. Choose from thinly sliced meats, fish balls, all kind of seafood (prawns, mussels, calamari and more) and plenty of tofu and bean curd variants.

Pile up on fresh vegetables and noodles. There's even an offal section that includes chicken hearts, pigs blood and tendon. Yum.

And they have fresh watermelon and oranges that will do you nicely for dessert too.
