The more the merrier! Hot pot is such an intimate way of eating food with your friends/loved ones :)
Sweet Home Cafe, $8.95 (for the Summer Garlic broth)
Sweet Home Cafe, dishes are $3-5
Sweet Home Cafe, FREE!
For those not familiar with hot pot, you boil the broth in front of you, and cook food (usually vegetables and meat, though my favorite is youtiao) throughout the whole meal.
I actually came here twice…once on the 2nd and once today. I love this place because the dessert they serve at the end is on the house! It usually comes out to ~$20/person after taxes+tip! The best thing about hot pot is that it scales well with people; you can fit 4 people/pot. The dessert also scales!back up
