MELBOURNE | Xiao Jun Gan Hot Pot might be new to us, and it is new to Melbourne, but it’s actually one of over 1,800 branches of the hot pot chain, which originated in China and has spread across Asia in recent years.
⁣⁣
They focus on Chengdu Mala Xiao Jun Gan (小郡肝), in particular Chuan Chuan Xiang, which is a kind of hot pot that involves skewers. You choose your broth, some dishes and additions from the menu, and then as many skewers and other additions as you want from chilled displays. It’s actually a relatively new style of hot pot which originated in the 1980s, when street food vendors wanted a more efficient way to quickly cook and sell their skewers.
⁣⁣
Their spicy broth is fantastic, but do be warned. Even spice fiend Lauren thought that is was very spicy. If you want something milder the pork bone broth is also delicious. Or you can do what we did and go for a 50/50 split which is served in a large pot with a divider.
⁣⁣
As for ingredients, it’s like most hot pot places with a mixture of familiar (to a western palate, and unfamiliar options). I highly recommend the pig’s brain. A lot of people are turned off by the thought of eating brain, but those willing to give it a go will be richly rewarded. The best way I can describe the pig’s brain at Xiao Jun Gan is like a less intense pate in both flavour and texture. It’s tender and smooth, with a mild flavour that’s enhanced by the broth.

For the less adventurous there are protein options like wagyu beef and chicken. Do make sure you get a serve of the sweet deep-fried taro balls to finish (but don’t put them inside the hotpot!). They’re delicious.
