On a cold Wednesday night, Mr. J and I decided to grab some soup. I suggested we eat at Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot. Luckily, we were seated right away. There wasn’t much of a wait for us. It is probably because we have a dinner schedule similar to that of senior citizens. Any time after 7:00 P.M. you may expect a longer wait time.

Let me explain what hot pot is, in case you haven’t been to one yet. There are many different kinds out there but once you get the gist of things you’re all set. Hot Pots are one of those fun and interactive dining experiences. You have this metal pot in the middle of the table filled with aromatic broth that you cook your choice of meats/seafood and vegetables in. The pot is extremely hot so be careful.

So once we were seated, we were given menus and a clipboard. Take as much time you need to browse through the menu, it may be overwhelming. Mr. J and I were overwhelmed that’s for sure. The clipboard is used to mark down what you would like to order which makes it easier for the staff. Be sure to carefully mark the correct boxes. It’s kind of like taking a test.

The soup base we got was the Yin and Yang. One side of the pot was original and the other side was house spicy. Both broths have goji berries, jujubes, caradamom, ginseng and other herbs. The difference to the house spicy is of course the chili. The spicy broth contains chili oil and peppercorns. You can order mild spicy, medium spicy, or extra spicy. Mr. J wanted dragon’s breath so he ordered extra spicy.

For the meat we ordered a full size of the supreme Angus beef. You can see the yam noodles and house dumplings in the background.

We also got the veggie combo. It consists of bok choy, napa cabbage, corn, tomato, pumpkin, tung ho, spinach.

I almost forgot, they have a sauce bar for you to dip your cooked foods in. Both of the broths were really good but I think the house spicy had more flavor than the original. The choice of meat was good and the full size portion was huge. I really enjoyed this dining experience and will come back when I have a craving for some hot pot.
