Expected to open by the end of May, Morfire is bringing Thai hot pot cooking to Capitol Hill, replacing Culture Club on 12th Avenue.

“We are very excited to bring that joy to Capitol Hill and especially proud to share the Thai hot pot that we have been cooking in our homes for friends and families for decades,” according to a restaurant news release.

Morfire, 1806 12th Ave., has several vegan options, on top of its chicken broth, including miso, vegetable and herbal, with assorted vegetable and tofu, plus rice or mung bean noodle to start. There are a number of a la carte add-ons.

“Even though Thai hot pot is our focus, we also offer our take on the popular Japanese and Chinese styles that we and many people love as well,” the new release states.

Small plates include gyoza, spicy fries and buffalo cauliflower, with larger plates of Thai-style fried rice and noodle dishes.

Morfire will have a full bar with seasonal cocktails, and also a cotton candy machine.
