X Pot: the Luxury Chinese Hot Pot Experience with a Vegas Flair

Located in the Palazzo, X Pot offers a true luxury experience of hot pot. When you walk through its doors, you will feel like you have been transported to the bustling modern Shanghai. A 50 foot long golden Phoenix flies across the ceiling of the restaurant while guests dine at luxe black and gold tables. Instrumental traditional Chinese music plays in the background while waiters in black vests move throughout the restaurant serving patrons. 

We started with the swan cakes which sat on a bed of dried ice mimicking a lake on a misty morning. The swan cakes are made of black flower dough, Chinese roast duck meat, minced onion with black pepper sauce. The X signature Wagyu tartare is mixed with lemon, capers and black pepper sauce. 

The Yin and Yang has blue fin tuna, 2 different cuts. One is the akami cut with kaluga caviar on top with kazami wasabi. The other cut is the Toro cut which is a fatty tuna. Topped with the house made tuna sauce, it is incredible. 

An assortment of high quality meats are served on a gorgeous bronzed cow with many tiers. Dried ice is poured beneath the cow and flows onto the table. The meats are filet mignon, ribeye w foie gras, beef tongue, chuck short rib, and short rib cube. Beef tongue and chuck short rib are grilled on the salt stone grill to ultimate perfection. 

The Wagyu feast is Miyazaki gyu which is a top Japanese Wagyu known for its quality and consistency. Produced from Black cattle and raised in Miyazaki prefecture, it’s known for its snowflake-like marbling. The fat is pushed into the meat due to the genetics of the cow which causes the marbling. Traditional beef does not have this intense of marbling. 

“The Sound of the Sea” has Boston Lobstertail, Chilean seabass, kushi oysters (Japanese)  and spotted prawn sashimi. 


The Golden Wagyu rice with truffle is divine. I’m Chinese and I’ve had fried rice my whole entire life. This is the best I’ve ever had for its succulent juiciness and delicate flavors. It’s perfectly salted and spiced, mixed with egg, green onions, red onions and ginger. The sliced truffles and potato crisp give an incredible accent. 


The dancing noodle is a flour noodle that is served in a whimsical presentation. The chef comes out and plays techno music at your table through a portable speaker and continues to pulls the noodles in front of you. As he stretches the noodles, he throws them, rotates them and creates a spectacle in true Vegas fashion. Cooked in your soup for 2 minutes, it is oh so tender and utterly delicious.
