I’m a hot-pot novice, but anything that gets a big group of friends and soon-to-be friends round a table slurping and munching and spilling and chatting has got to be a good thing right? So when an invite came from Going With My Gut to join a hot potty crew for dinner, I was never going to refuse.
And it was everything that I hoped it would be. Tasty, interesting, fun and full of lots of new things. The restaurant, Little Lamb, was cozy and – thanks goodness – air conditioned. Eating spicy hot and aromatic hotpot is, well, HOT work.
We chatted, we dunked, we ate and ate and ate as plate after plate of food was ferried to our table. Snow crab, tofu knots, fish tofu and thick and slippery Mongolian noodles were all highlights. That’s not to say everything else wasn’t tasty, because it sure was.
Instead of yabbering on any more, I’ll just show you the some of that joyful procession of plates and say if you get the chance to go to Little Lamb, do so. For £20 a head you get a real feast:
