    Gosh your pics of the hot pot are amazing ! I’m envious how you get others to order more food when you’re there . Brilliant . Must learn . I haven’t tried their bbq items yet . Did you think the pork skewers were a decent price ? You’ll have to try their fried chicken wings . They’ve gotten better . What did you think about the honey shrimp being served over the lettuce ? The wings are served over cold lettuce which we found a bit odd (it makes the wings a bit soggy if you don’t eat right away ). Merry Xmas Mary !

      Hi Faye – You just dictate! Sound like an authority and people will follow. Usually. Hahah. The skewers price was okay, maybe a little high. I can’t remember how much they cost at the ramen places but I think these are a little more expensive. I do want to try the chicken wings! I’ll drag Jake in here sometime to try them. I thought it was okay being served over lettuce, I didn’t think about it much honestly!

    Hi, Mary, hot pot spots (I just love Dr. Seuss), have been rapidly becoming one of my favorite places to dine. I love your addition of the egg. Was it for adding flavor to the broth or purely for photo enhancement? The pork belly looks juicy but I’m like you, a funky seed hater. Sesame would be okay, however. I tend to eat a lot of things with sesame seeds or sesame oil. The only down side to hot pot style, is the inevitable mess of splashing the broth as I stir it and transferring it to the bowl once it’s piping hot and ready to eat. You should see me eat pho. Not a pretty picture with anything remotely soupy.

      Heehee… hot pot spots 🙂 They put the egg in here, I didn’t ask for it. It just comes with the dish! Sesame would have been a better choice for seeds! Otherwise, please leave weird seeds off of my food. Thank you. When I eat soup out, I usually bring the bowl up to my face and eat because otherwise… dear god. It’ll look like I splashed through a pool of water or something. I can’t get things to STAY in my spoon until it gets to my mouth. It’s a problem… 🙂

  3. It’s “fun” to dictate! *For me that is, ha ha.

    Man, that is A LOT of Food! How can anyone finish one of those is beyond me. I would have to share it.

    Boo to wierd seeds.

      One of my co-workers ate all of his (I think). I’m a tiny bit jealous he can eat that much, haha! I like doing the ordering. You already know this about me. 🙂 Seriously, weird seeds should never be on my food!
