Another addition to one of the hottest local dining trends, Vegas Hot Pot has arrived on Spring Mountain Road, serving a huge roster of ready to simmer ingredients, plus an all-you-can-eat option for lunchtime customers.
Keeping the red lantern ceiling design of previous tenant Chengdu Laozao Hotpot, the new restaurant sits in a corner space at the Rainbow Plaza retail center, between Westwind Road and Duneville Street and a short distance from the pan-Asian neighbors of Hobak Korean BBQ.
The all-you-can-eat hot pot choices are available daily from 11.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m., offering four different soup bases. Each dish can be upgraded with wide variety of familiar meats and vegetables, or more adventurous options of duck gizzards, pork brain and black fungus.
The dinner menu adds even more choices, including “legend” selections of fresh eel, “duck flippers,” “hand tearing dark tripe” and “beef throat” among its authentic flavors. Guests can also help themselves to the “seasoning bar” for extra kicks to their sizzling hot pots.
Getting the jump on one Xiang Hot Pot’s famous menu items, headed later this year to the Strip, Vegas Hot Pot diners have the option of dropping bear-shaped pats of butter into each bowl, slowly melting into the soup.
Vegas Hot Pot, 5740 Spring Mountain Road, 702-247–1123. Open daily from 11.30 a.m. to midnight.
