On a cold Monday night my bf and I were wandering the streets of Northbridge to fulfil our bubble tea cravings. We couldn’t help but notice a new restaurant called Little Lamb Hot Pot and it was completely packed which is unusual for a Monday night. We took a peek inside and was told that it was fully booked. In the 30secs we wertr in there, the smell, look and concept hooked us in and we knew we’d have to come back.
It’s a Chinese Buffet with Hot Pot AND not just any grill BBQ, but a coal grill BBQ station! Hot Pot is also known as steamboat where you drop a variety of meats, seafood, vegetables and fish balls. These ingredients are boiled in a flavoured stock of your choice. By the end of your eating session the broth should be very flavoursome from all the ingredients.

Little Lamb Salad Bar, Noodles and Veggies
The first few salad options were cooked salads including spicy beef, noodle salad and some more adventurous salads like chicken feet and pickled veg and chilli.
Further down you have multiple noodle options and greens.
More Veggies, Sauces and Other Goodies
Following the buffet line around there was more asian condiments, sauces and other goodies which included Spam, fish cakes, lotus root, crabstick and so much more.
Fish Balls, Fish Balls and Fish Balls … Oh and some hot food in the background.
Mussels, prawns and so, so many varieties of fishballs. Stuffed ones, soft ones, crunchy ones, fried ones, thin ones, thick ones, half ones and then last but not least a crabstick inside a fishball! All were amazing.
In the background there is a warmer of ready to eat food.
Little Lamb Half Spicy Half Normal Hot Pot
Half normal and half spicy. The normal part tasted like a herbal hearty broth. The spicy side, which was my favourite tasted like a real vesion of what 2 minute noodles try to taste like.
These thinly sliced lamb pieces are constantly sliced and churned out.
So many different skewers ready for you to rotate over the coal grill! Some normal stuff like pork, beef and chicken and then some more interesting skewers like liver, quail eggs, spam and my favourite pork skin to make crackling.
Rotisserie of Skewers
No need to use your muscles here the machine rotates the skewers for you!
While you wait for your food to cook, there are buns, gyoza’s, honey soy chicken and some amazing deep fried chilli salt and pepper squid.
At only $39.00 not only do you get all of the above, you also have unlimited tea, soft drinks, asian drinks, Emu Bitter cans and Hahn Light bottles. As they are relatively new, the service wasn’t top notch and this place gets packed so make sure you book ahead.
