The thing to order, is a hot pot, according to Chris. (Confirmed by every other table slurping up soup!) We requested 1/2 chicken, 1/2 spicy. We siped the house offering of tea and arranged our chopsticks, spoons and personal strainers.
For our do-it-yourself ingredients, Chris took the reigns: beef, fish balls, mushrooms, spinach and soy/sesame oil dipping sauce.
While only beer (Tsingtao) is served, patrons are welcome to bring their own bottles of wine. We popped into a close-by shop for a South African Sauvignon Blanc. Much needed, we were sniffling and sweating with the intensely spicy broth.
