It’s winter time and when the temperature drops, my friends and I get a craving for Hot Pot. Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot was the closest to our neighbourhood, so we decided to come after work during a weekday.
They have 3 locations in Burnaby, Vancouver and Richmond. We went to this one in Burnaby right across from Metrotown.
It is $20.98 per adult plus the price of broth ($9.99 per table). Drinks and premium items are extra.
There are a lot of tables and not too busy on a weekday. On the weekends, this place is busy.
While you are waiting for you order, make sure you go create your own dipping sauce.
All the sauce for the hot pot is available in the middle of the restaurant. It’s on top of a cart and you’re free to grab as much as your like.
The different sauces are:
- Soy sauce
- Peanut Sauce
- Chili paste
- Chili oil
- Satay sauce
The peanut sauce and satay sauce are most popular.
The broth we had was a mix of spicy and original broth. It’s a good option to get if you have a group of friends who can’t decide which broth to get.
I generally find that spicy is great for cooking meat and the original is great for vegetables.
We ordered an assortment of items for the hot pot. Mostly yam noodles, udon, frozen tofu, tofu curds, tofu puffs, and lotus roots.
We piled on almost every kind of meat. We made sure to keep the vegetables to one basket.
All the food was great and the spicy side of the hot pot wasn’t too hot at all. A good balance.
Overall, a good hot pot option in South Burnaby. I hate coming when its busy, but a week day night is great.
The service here was pretty good as well, which was surprising. When we needed water, tea or coke refilled, they were very prompt and even took the initiative to ask us. In a Chinese restaurant, thats pretty crazy.
