The spicy pot is not really that hot on a scale of 1 to 10 their spiciest is only a 7. But the quality of the food is very good. Must order the onion pancake and the beef chow mein!
Make your own dipping sauce using the tofu (fu yu) sauce, it makes the food tastes so much better.

If you are of age to drink make sure you order the yellow wine, they will heat it for you and you get sour plums to put in your cup for extra flavor.

Stop by and say hi to Joe the owner!

Hot Pot Hot Pot was pretty awesome. The original broth was delicious in that it had great Chinese herbal flavors. The spicy broth was also delicious and was actually our favorite. We ordered medium heat, which was just about right. We ordered beef and pork belly but could have done without it. The fish and scallops were great. My favorite was all of the veggies/non meat items - potatoes, lotus root, napa cabbage, enoki mushrooms, daikon, and tofu. Price feels a bit high - too bad this place wasn’t all you can eat.

Hot Pot Hot Pot is an excellent hot pot restaurant. The place is cozy and very tastefully decorated. The service is impeccable, there was always a waiter in the vicinities of our table ready to help or bring more food. The price is very very reasonable for both the quality and the amount of food. As a party of five we ate a lot and spent less than 100 dollars, tip included. the hot broths are delicious and there is a wide variety of meats, fish and dumplings. definitely recommend the pork dumplings and the prime rib. excellent service, one of the best hot pots restaurants on earth!

It was a very different surprise for me. The way the hot pot cooks is similar to the pho, but the water comes to boiling at your table in a special cook top. You have choices of broth and ingredients. there are clear instructions on the place mat. We ordered too many ingredients to make our sea food and mushrooms and vegetables pot! The oysters boiled that way are just marvelous. Scallops and calamari also very good. Watch out, they get very hot and can burn your mouth! Because we ordered too much stuff, the price was $45 for 2. Worth it!

Visiting from out of town. Family took me here. Soup is excellent. Meats very tender and veggies fresh. Not sure about the enhanced digestive properties yet.
