With soups based on a century old recipe, you know that at Dragon Hot Pot in Burwood you are getting only the finest and most authentic Chinese flavours. The soup is a fusion of over twenty traditional Chinese herbs as well as marrow bones cooked for over twelve hours — all combining to create a soup as memorable as any you're likely to find in Sydney. 

Its signature Ma La Tang soup combines 24 wild herbs from Mount Emei in China and produces a fragrant, thick and golden soup. Vegetarians can enjoy the vegan soup with vegan herbs, spices and ingredients. For a richer flavour, try the pickled mustard concoction that's been fermented for six hours or the collagen bone broth that's includes only the highest quality marrow bones and is extremely flavourful.

Flesh out your hot pot with meat slices including pork, wagyu, beef tongue and chicken or seafood options such as fresh squid, sea cucumber and raw fish. For something more adventurous, opt for the porcine brains, the bullfrog or the ox aorta. Vegetarians aren't forgotten here either, which can be rare at a hot pot, with an array of options including Chinese cabbage, potato slices and soybean sprouts.

The atmosphere in here is bustling and the decor suggests a thriving Chinese market. The service is fast and friendly but the hot pot is the main focus. With a huge array of options, Great Dragon Hot Pot Burwood is bound to be a joint you return to over and over again.
