The weather's been a little rainy in Seattle lately so we wanted hot pot for lunch! I had never gone out for hot pot, having just experienced it at home. Hot pot's been around for 1000 years, originating in Mongolia. The concept is that you start with a bowl of hot soup which is warmed on a burner in the center of the table. Next you take your raw meats and veggies and cook them in the soup. Then just ladle the food onto your plate and enjoy! We ate at Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Chinatown. The service was a little spotty, they forgot our drinks and waited until almost the end to bring our fried rice. But I enjoyed the ambiance and look of the restaurant, located upstairs in the old Ocean City restaurant. I really liked the water feature upon entering and the sage colors were welcoming and relaxing. The fire place on the wall also added to the calming atmosphere. We ordered the $29.99 combination that feed 3-4 people and it came with beef and lamb, seafood, veggies, pot stickers, and rice. It was fun cooking the food tableside and anytime I can get a unique and authentic experience right in Seattle, I'm happy.
