Tomato hot pot restaurant: try the new
What makes this hot pot restaurant different from others is its broth, made
from tomatoes and other ingredients, stewed together for 24 hours. The broth
tastes quite sweet, sour and is full of flavor. Beef compliments this broth, and
vegetables cooked in it don't need any extra flavoring to taste great.
The wait staff dress in costumes, with the boys wearing shirts reading
'handsome boy' and girls wearing clothes emblazoned with 'hot girl'. It's a
great get-together place for young people who like tomatoes.

smashed fish meat, smashed shrimp meat and smashed chicken. A nice place for a
romantic meeting with that special someone.

Taipo Tianfu Shanzhen Jiulou: mushroom hot pot
Taipo Tianfu Shanzhen Jiulou is among the first few restaurants to sell
mushroom hot pot. Various fresh mushrooms cooked in nutrious black-bone chicken
broth taste quite different. Finished off with a cup of red bitter deer blood
tea, the meal is almost perfect except for the dim lighting and the somewhat
simple restaurant d¨Ścor.
