New Generation Hot Pot
I heard so much about the hot pot place. First let me explain what a "Hot Pot" is? Well, basically you have your choice of a broth and you order meat and/or seafood along with vegetables and noodles. You put your special dipping sauce together, a little sweet, spicy mild and that is your dipping sauce for any meats or seafood that you order.
Well, I can say that New Generation Hot Pot offers the exact same type of service. I walked in with family and a good friend to try this new place out.
The first thing that stands out is its very clean and the atmosphere and decoration is Asian contemporary. Our waitress was very professional and helpful. She took the time to explain the menu. The broths that stood out was the pork broth since I know what it tste like from simmering down pork shoulders bones and using for soup. The other broth was a Tom Yum broth, sort of spicy and tart.
I choose one meat,, the fatty beef why? when there's some fat on the meat, its not as tough and a bit more flavorful.. The seafood I chose the shrimp with the head on and shell. It's more flavorful. To the left there was a conveyor of all the noodles, veggies, mushroom, and fancy veggies. All included under 1 price. If you finish the beef, you can get more, or more shrimp order more. Other seafood was bay scallop and clams.
Then you place the meat in the broth and then dip it in your special dipping sauce
The beauty of this hot pot was that everyone had their own broth.
Generally speaking, each customer traditionally would place their meat or vegetable in the special spoon for dipping, but here, you can dump all ingredients into the broth.
Hot Pot is a hands on creating your own combinations and cooking and then dipping in your own sauce.
The waitress will remove dishes and fill your broth up.
For $ 25 all you can eat, this is not a bad deal, great value.
So, bring your friends, about 6 people in a booth and talk and eat until your full. It's a great place to socialize with friends.
