what is hot pot?

A traditional Inner Mongolia dish served in a metal pot

Hot pot is the centerpiece of the Little Sheep dining experience. A visual delight, each hot pot is filled with a steaming aromatic broth that’s decorated with an assortment of fresh ingredients such as goji berries, jujubes, black cardamon pods, ginseng and herbs.

For those who like their meal on the fiery side, a spicy crimson broth can be ordered with “mala” chili oil and peppercorns. Guests then place their selection of delicately sliced marbled meats, crisp vegetables, fresh seafood and handmade noodles into the broth, let simmer and enjoy.

hot pot history

Traced back to more than 1,000 years

Mongol horsemen would fill their overturned helmets with water, place them in embers to simmer and add meat and vegetables. As the Mongols traveled throughout China, they began to create their own unique dishes by adding local ingredients. Today you can enjoy a delicious hot pot meal (no helment required) at Little Sheep Monglian Hot Pot. So bring your family and friends and create your own dining history.

I think this place is great! The service is very quick and the options are great. They offer combos for different sized groups that are very affordable. I recommend going with that option. You get the most bang for your buck.

Authentic Chinese hot pot, and quality lives up to the brand name! Been to Little Sheep in China, US, and Canada, so glad there's one now at my doorstep.

What I love about Little Sheep compared to other hot pot places I've been to is the selection of vegetables, meats, seafood and sauces.
