Fire in the Bowl @ Oriental Tea House

Location: Gd 068/69 Melbourne Central Shopping Centre (Enter via Elizabeth St. entrance)
Phone: 03 9066 0207
Cuisine: Chinese
What has three serves of dumplings, sweet potato noodles, tofu skin, cabbage, pieces of chicken and fish and A TONNE of chilli and peppers…?
It’s Oriental Teahouse’s aptly named 'Fire in the Bowl’!
Peach Melba ice tea - to help us handle the heat
Calm & Concentration tea - to calm us down after the fiery experience

After the recent launch of Fire in the Bowl, Gastrology bloggers experienced the theatre of this truly hot pot and tested our spice tolerance a couple of days ago at Oriental Teahouse in Melbourne Central. 
Costing a mere $12.50 for a generous *hot* pot, you get to choose from three levels of heat – mild, medium or spicy! 
The hot pots are very tasty but be warned, the hua jiao (Szechuan Pepper) is certainly not for the faint-hearted. Fire in the Bowl is certainly all you would expect from an authentic Szechuan Hot Pot and we couldn’t help but go back for more!
