Hot pot works like this: you choose a broth, pick some veggies and some meat, and cook everything in a pot at your table. It’s sort of like Korean barbecue, and, actually, Hometown Hot Pot does that as well. You come here for the hot pot, however, and it’s about $24 per person. That gets you unlimited meat, veggies, noodles, and broth. And if that sounds like a good deal, that’s because it is, and you aren’t the only one who knows it. This place is actually massive (with two floors), but it still gets busy. If you’re with a group of 6 or more, call ahead for a reservation. Smaller parties have to take their chances, and, regardless of party size, everyone should prepare to drink cheap beer and leave smelling like meat.
