Soup refills are available at the front counters in thermos pots – I had a bit of a taste since I poured some into a bowl before pouring it into the pot ad it wasn’t exactly water.. but not straight broth either. More like salty water/really diluted broth? (Think 1:9 water to broth ratio)

I tried the squid + beef combo on my second visit and it definitely didn’t disappoint! I’m usually not a huge fan of seafood so I don’t know how it compares to other seafood places, but the squid they served was thick and juicy, and I might just order it again my next visit.

Drink *Not included with the meal, but an extra add on for $6
- The drink was definitely on the small side – I would suggest you order it without ice since it gets diluted as time goes by.
- Soy Sauce
- Shallots, Chilli, dried garlic
- I usually prefer udon when hot potting, but seeing as there’s so much meat I think the rice noodles were a good idea – udon might have been too filling.
- Excluding the bowl of vegetables, there aren’t any extra ingredients (fish balls/dumplings etc) so there wasn’t much variety (unless you can pay for the extra add-ons) – it would’ve beeen nice if there was some, but once again, since there is a lot of meat, I don’t think I would’ve finished it.
- Probably the biggest comment about Fairwood’s hot pot is that maybe it was because of the original soup being ‘Tomato & Potato soup’, it didn’t really taste like the usual hot pot but more like cooking meat in soup leftover from yesterday?
- The pot comes with a lid! Which means you can, to some extent, stop the soup from evaporating!
