Our visit to Yummy Chinese BBQ was a little unintentional. We were infact looking for an all you can eat hotpot joint in Chinatown, but these seem to be very scarce these days so when we saw the sign at the door for all you can eat skewers and hotpot, that was about the closest we could find!
It’s a nice setup, and much tidier and cleaner than most other Chinese skewer/AYCE places we’ve visited in Sydney, and there’s a vast spread of pre-skewered meats, veggies and sides on display. We’re sold instantly!
The idea is that you get a large charcoal bbq in the middle of your table where the meats rotate themself to cook- minimal effort involved! You also get a small hotpot on the side for the best of both worlds!
We start with the sides where there is a large selection of chilled veggie dishes.
Then we move onto the meats where there is everything from your typical chicken, beef, lamb to offal.
We find somethings work well on the rotating bbq, other things not so much. Like the sausages which were so soft they fell off the skewer, or the unbalanced chicken which would not rotate. All part of the fun I guess!
You’re also given a net where you can grill unskewered items like enoki mushrooms, corn and garlic bread.
The hotpot selection comes with your typical options of veggies, fish balls, mushrooms etc. Beef and lamb slices are ordered and brought out from the kitchen.
There’s also soft serve for dessert and on the day we visit there’s vanilla and matcha on offer.
