In Hong Kong, some hot pot restaurants have specialties. Little Fat Sheep is famous for lamp hot pot; Little Fat Cow is famous for beef hot pot; Tanyoto (Tam's Fish Head) is famous for giant fish head. If you want to enjoy a delightful hot pot meal, better go to specialty shops where their table settings and ventilation systems are all set.
There are other hot pot restaurants charging a fix price and you can eat all you can. Of course, you would have to comprise on food quality, service and everything.
The other day I went to Little Fat Cow. Their special offer was only HK$10. We ordered the best deals on the menu - local beef (HK$28) and beef in Huadiao wine (HK$18). You can also order beef from overseas like Canada, USA, Australia or Japan which costs up to HK$88 per dish.
Neck Beef - Special Offer HK$10 (US$1.3) 牛頸脊
Local Beef - HK$28 (US$3.6) 本地肥牛
We can turn this big lump of prawn's meat into
small balls to cook in the hot pot
Prawn's Meat - HK$55 (US$7) 蝦膠
although there were other choices.
Even so, I have tofu and some vegetable
as accessories in the soup base.
