Hot Pot at Master Den’s

Melbourne, you’d be safe and warm this Winter if you are at Mater Den’s. This secretive poppu uppu (Japanese translation of pop-up) down Flinders Lane provides great service, amazing Melbourian vibe and most importantly; mouth watering hot pots!

Walk pass Fonda towards Spring Street and then pass the parking lot. Just when you wonder where Master Den is, you’ll see white posters pasted in a small hole in the wall.

Yep, there it is, Melbourne’s little secret hot pot place, available this Winter only. The most Melbourne thing about it is that you’d need to BUZZ to get in. #VIPeveryday

At Mater Den’s, they cater for beef lovers, seafood eaters and vegetarian dieters. Menu changes daily because at Mater Den, they only serve the best cut of beef and freshest seafoods.

Enjoy a drink or two? We highly recommend getting their Hot Pot matching drink selection, especially paired to the hot pot flavour you choose. The drink selection starts you off with a beer, follow by sake and finish off your night with a glass of wine.

If you are like us who always have space for something sweet after dinner; Mater Den’s provides traditional Japanese desserts like Ichigo Daifuku (Strawberry Mochi). We highly suggest getting the ginger + Fuji apple sorbet, a nice refreshing dessert to cleanse your palate.

Melbourne, do us a favour and visit Mater Den’s Poppu Uppu hot pot restaurant this Winter. Trust us, you’ll fall in love with it like we do. It is the place to take your friends who come and visit Melbourne. The place to be if you enjoy an intimate date night. The place to dine if you love getting fed and still have a decent conversation with your mates.

See you there Melbourne, and we look forward to hearing which hot pot broth is YOUR favourite.

Don’t forget to get their Udon noodles, they are slippery good and most importantly… they are handmade! Lastly, continue your night out upstairs at Hihou (Japanese translation of treasure), a Japanese influenced bar owned by the same owner as Mater Den’s.
