    Where to buy Methanol Gel

    Hey guys,

    I bought a bunch of hotpot pots from Taobao. Turns out they need Gel to work instead of the usual alcohol. Any idea where I can buy that in HK?

    You should be able to buy chafing fuel at any catering, party supplies store or possibly a mum and pop pots and pans cum hardware and bits n pieces shop.

    Not sure where you live to offer anything firmer than that, soz.

    I guess it won't matter for my purposes. The gel exists in both variations.

    In case anyone needs something like that in the future: The two streets right next to the Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market are lined with dozens of shops selling various restaurant supplies, hotpots, fuel etc.
