Recently, I visited “Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot” and I must say it was a pretty unique experience . Very different from what you would normally get from a restaurant here in the states as this is more driven behind the fundamental ideas of gathering as friends and family and sharing healthy food with one another.
You start by first selecting Hot Pot soup base. Choices are as follow:
·Half & Half
We chose the half and half to get a full experience of the menu.
Next, you choose from a very diverse menu of items you want from vegetables, meats, rice, noodles, etc. We went very broad in this aspect and damn near chose the entire menu. *Lamb shoulder, angus beef, tripe(thin beef), shrimp meatballs, fish meatballs, spinach, mushrooms, noodles, steamed rice(on the side), just to name a few*
While waiting on them to bring out the items, you go over and choose your spices. I didn’t find a combination I liked but I also didn’t really need them because I enjoyed the flavor from the broth.
This is where it gets fun. From the items you picked, you cook them yourself in the boiling hot pot of your choice. Items like the beef and lamb could take seconds to cook. Other items like the meatballs and vegetables may take a few mins to cook and absorb the flavors. We placed the vegetables in first to add to the broth for flavor purposes. We cooked the meat last since it took less time to cook.
All in all, great experience and I would definitely go back again! At first I thought this is definitely something I couldn’t get full off of but I greatly underestimated the amount they give you. As far as price…. it’s above your average sit down restaurant. Depending on your group and the amount you order, I would say it would be about $35-$40 a person. Well worth the food and experience.
