Thanks to Hotpot Instinct you no longer have to simply follow your nose for excellent Asian cuisine in Hong Kong. Tucked into Kam Ho Court along Belcher’s Street in Kennedy Town, Hotpot Instinct is the Western District’s default location for an array of Far Eastern delicacies covering Japanese sushi and sashimi, Chinese dimsum and, of course, delicious hot pot. Already represented in Sai Wan, this Kennedy Town outpost of Hotpot Instinct is set to rock the pot in new and interesting ways.
Hotpot Instinct likes to play with its food. This Kennedy Town hotpot restaurant recently staged an all-you-can-eat challenge offering diners the chance to wolf down as much A4-grade Wagyu beef in 90 minutes. Thankfully, for those who like to actually taste what they’re eating, Hotpot Instinct’s Belcher’s Street premises offer a reliably relaxed environment where Western District diners can indulge in slow social meals centred on steaming bowls of seafood, meat and vegetables served most usually in the Chinese hotpot style that Hong Kong diners love.
While the focus at Hotpot Instinct is, instinctually enough, Chinese hotpot cuisine, this Kennedy Town restaurant likes to mix it up with other Asian delicacies, and even a few suitably compatible European dishes. Match your hotpot with Italian-style mussels and Japanese sashimi, or chow down on some Malaysian satay for an international play on Hotpot Instinct’s central offering. If you are sticking to hotpot, there are many brothy flavours to douse your chosen quarry in: drunken chicken, luxuriant Japanese sake, Cantonese apple and more. Find Hong Kong’s Hotpot Instinct presiding over the Western District’s already jam-packed Chinese hotpot restaurant scene at Kam Ho Court, and be sure to book.
The English menu was appreciated, but the staff were not able to help too much in answering any questions about it so some of the meal ended up being somewhat of a surprise! That said, the food was good and we enjoyed the experience. I like the simple decor with booth seating which felt cosy on a cold winters night.
Food are very good and fresh. Manager is so nice to recommend the daily seafood to us which we enjoyed a lot! Like the environment so much. Will definitely come again:)
Good food, reasonably priced, comfortable environment, location is easy to reach.
