MELBOURNE | David’s Malatang have opened several restaurants across Melbourne over the past few years, and are one of the best known names in the increasingly popular hot pot scene. The Russell Street location is smaller and a bit fancier looking that the other outposts, but the focus is still well and truly on hot pot.

Malatang translates into English as “spicy numbing hot” and is a type of hot pot that originated in Sichuan province, and is named for its key ingredient mala sauce, which is flavored with a combination of Sichuan pepper and dried chilli pepper. The result is hot pot that has that wonderful interplay between numbing and spice that Sichaun food is famous for.

When you walk in to the restaurant you grab a small or large bowl and fill it using tongs with your choice of over 100 ingredients from the pick and mix display. Everything is priced at $3.20 per 100 grams which makes paying easier. Your choice is things like meat, noodles, seafood, offal, tofu and vegetables and more. The pigs blood, lamb, and fish balls are highly recommended.

Once you’ve selected your ingredients, you go up to the counter and choose from five different broths, and your desired heat level. The signature malatang broth is best, and contains over 24 varieties of wild herb sourced from China’s Mount Emei.

Hot pot is the main attraction here, but the other dishes are also delicious. Think things like Sichuan beef strips, spicy pigs brains, and bowls sliced brisket, chilli and coriander.

The great thing about hot pot is that you can customise it exactly how you want. Whether it’s a mild or spicy bowl, familiar ingredients or offal, there’s something for everyone. Our advice is to think outside the box and try something new, but really you can’t go wrong no matter what you choose.
