Ritual

And what is a Chinese hot pot?

Think of it like Asian fondue – just replace the chocolate and cheese with fresh meat and handmade noodles. Simmer Huang’s simmer pots are born from a recipe passed down from the CEO Mr Wong’s ancestor who was a master chef to Emperor Tongzhi, the 10th emperor of the Manchu-led Qing Dynasty.

Step inside the state-of-the-art restaurant and staff will lead you to one of the snug red vinyl booths. On the black marble table you’ll find an electric heating ring which cooks the big pot of fresh ingredients, and the menu that comes with a clipboard and pencil for you to tick off your choices.

You order one of two ways: Either build a DIY hot pot and pick your own ingredients from a selection of meats, offal and seafood or choose one of their preselected combos. All of their simmer pots feature a base of butter paste and veggies, with the main protein on top and spices for seasoning, and will feed about two to three people.

The vegetables include thickly chopped celery, onion, carrots, red and green capsicum, sweet potato, garlic cloves, goji berries, dates and topped with fresh coriander.

Once you’ve chosen your hot pot, the wait staff will come to your table and start assembling layers of seasoned fresh meat and vegetables into a modern induction cooker in front of you.

The pot simmers away for about 15 minutes until you’re ready to dig in. Just before your chopsticks hit the pot, the staff will ladle Simmer Huang’s “secret sauce” over the top of the ingredients to complete the dish.

“This is the most important part of our recipe,” manager David said. “The sauce is so secret it is made in China by Mr Wong and sent to us. We don’t have any idea what it is made from.”

The thick “secret sauce” comes in different flavours including salty, mild, spicy, hot, super hot or salty and spicy.

When you’ve eaten the majority of the hot pot, a mushroom broth is added to the leftovers to create a bubbling soup.

Staff also spin and stretch out their signature fresh noodles by hand and add to the broth to create a dish that’s a bit more like a traditional Chinese hot pot. There are also additional items like enoki mushrooms, quail eggs, seaweed, beef tripe and roe in fish balls that you can order for the broth.

Along with hot pots, the menu boasts other small dishes like steamed chicken with chilli sauce, tomato salad and dumplings.

The cuisine is China is deeply diverse and is an integral part of Chinese culture. Chinese people are arguably the most food-obsessed in the world – but they don’t just cook and eat anything, they are experts at making everything (literally everything) taste amazing. China is a large nation and its numerous regional cuisines are so varied, it’s hard to believe they are from the same country. There are eight major traditional cuisines in China, which have been formed by a complex combination of history, cooking features, geography, climate, resources and lifestyle. The eight different traditional cuisines are Shandong, Guangdong (Cantonese), Sichuan, Hunan, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian and Anhui cuisine. While Sichuan and Hunan cuisines are hot and spicy, Cantonese, Fujian, Zhejiang and Jiangsu dishes are generally sweet and have light flavours and focus on seafood. Anhui and Fujian cuisines include a lot of wild foods from their mountainous regions, while Shandong cuisine food is fresh and salty with many seafood dishes. Three traditional aspects of Chinese food is colour, smell and taste, but a dish’s meaning, appearance and nutrition is also important.
