Hot Pot restaurants in Vancouver have strange names

Diana Chan May 6, 2011 Food for Thought

Did you know Hot Pot Restaurants from all over the Lower Mainland have hilarious names? Some of them I have to admit are pretty lame, makes no sense, and are probably bad english translations. I just had to compile a short list of Hot Pot Restaurants in Vancouver to show you guys how funny they are.

Of course this does not apply to all Hot Pot Restaurants. Some have normals ones, but I found the list above to be quite funny. Just so you know, I haven’t been to these Hot Pot restaurants, so I don’t know if they are any good. I just know, they make me giggle.

Do you know of any other Hot Pot restaurant with strange names?

    LOL! Yups! Most of these places really only care about the name in Chinese, not in English…btw, it’s “Paper Rock Social Lounge”…this place used to be in the hotel on Kingsway and 12th…can’t remember the name of that hotel…

    naming of Hot Pot restaurants must be like naming Thai restaurants. i wonder if there’s a Hot to Pot one? based on Hot to Trot expression 🙂 perhaps i should grab that one now for myself.
