Given the mind-boggling spread of options in Hong Kong, if you really want proper Cantonese hot pot it’s best to keep it local. Come Come Chicken Pot is one of the places to do so around Victoria Park and Tin Hau, a nondescript eatery tucked away on Whitfield Road where you can’t even read an English menu. This is the real deal. Broths are rich and flavoursome, beef and chicken are very juicy and tender, and there is all manner imaginable of crispy fresh vegetables, freshly made tofu rolls, glassy or eggy noodles and slitheringly fresh seafood (pop in whole crabs for a proper local variety) to add to the mix. Hotpot is by nature a social occasion, but if some in the party are not so smitten with Come Come Chicken Pot’s soupy stuff there are plenty of delicious Chinese rice and noodle dishes, like the popular pork chop rice with eggs, though vegetarian options also abound.
