Korean restaurant chain K Pot Korean BBQ & Hot Pot is opening two locations in Austin. Eater Austin previously reported that the first will be found in Sunset Valley at 5200 Brodie Lane, which will open on Monday, January 15.

The second K Pot will be in the Arboretum neighborhood at 10000 Research Boulevard. That opening date isn’t available yet.

K Pot offers both all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue and Korean hot pot. For the Korean barbecue, people can cook meats and vegetables using the table grills. Meat options include spicy beef bulgogi, brisket, steak, short ribs, garlic chicken, smoked garlic pork belly, mussels, pineapples, pumpkins, and potatoes.

And then, for the Korean hot pot, people can cook vegetables and meats in hot simmering pots of broth at their tables. Broths include Thai tom yum, Sichuan spicy, the vegetarian tomato soup, and the Japanese miso. These meats include an array of sliced options such as pork to beef belly to lamb to chicken; then there are Spam, crab meat, quail eggs, fish roe balls, dumplings, noodles (udon, ramen), rice cakes, fried taro, lotus roof, seaweed, mushrooms, and much more. There are also a bunch of dipping sauces.

K Pot began in 2018 in Flushing, New York, and grew with locations across the country. There are several in the Houston area, and a new one opened in San Antonio in October 2023. There are plans for locations in Fort Worth and Arlington too.

K Pot’s Brodie Lane hours will be from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and then from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. (with all-day dinner available) Friday and Saturday.
