The Dolar Shop Sydney - Haymarket
Don’t worry – this Dolar Shop isn’t a bargain shop selling party props or tourist tat. Rather a popular chain from Shanghai specialising in Macanese hotpot, Dolar Shop is the latest addition to the 1909 Dining Precinct in Market City Haymarket.
However if you think it’s just another hot pot joint, think again. For starters, each diner gets his or her own mini pot. That means while I enjoy the spare rib broth as soup base, my other half can go chilli-crazy with his Szechuan Hot & Spicy broth which comes in three levels of heat intensity. The soup base is the first option you choose on the menu at around $10 per pot per person.
Another essential is the dipping sauce. The restaurant claims to have “the most exciting and comprehensive Sauce Bar to hot pot that you have ever seen”. This is no exaggeration. The entire sauce bar is about three meters long with no less than twenty types of dipping sauce and garnishes to choose from. Peanut sauce, sesame sauce, beef sauce, mushroom sauce… I had a hard time deciding which one to choose. The Dolar Shop Speciality Soy Sauce was brought to our table along with chopped up shallots and Thai chilli, and it was definitely a winner.
