Assorted Beef and Lamb (58¥) – We selected the normal meat. It had lots of fat but was very tasty. There is no need to upgrade to the more expensive options that can cost many times more.

Nan Men Hot Pot Beijing China Shrimp Paste

Specially made mashed Shrimp (48¥) – Smashed into a plastic bag and extruded into your hot pot. Sounds gross but tastes like regular shrimp.

Red Bean Milk (10¥) – More milk flavor than red bean. The milk in China tastes different than the US.

Rose Flower Juice (12¥) – Subtle flavors. Very sweet. They combine multiple juices in one to achieve this effect.

Two types of dipping sauce, a thick sesame sauce and soy sauce.

Pans:

Nan Men Hot Pot had decent service although the server could have come around more. They did promptly refill the hot pot when needed. The quality of the ingredients was very good. The meats, veggies, and noodles were all very tasty. If you take too long and run out of fuel, you do have to pay for more. We have no problems recommending this place.

    […] Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot is a hot pot restaurant in downtown San Mateo, right across from Walgreen’s. Their soup base options have recently become more acceptable for mainstream Americans.  This company has a couple locations in the USA and many more in Asia. Yum Brands (KFC, Taco Bell) actually partly owns this company. Chinese hot pot is a fun meal where a pot of boiling broth at your table is used to cook meats, vegetables, and seafood. Cooking involves dipping the food in the boiling broth for 30 seconds to a couple minutes. They also have some pre-cooked BBQ and Rice, Dumpling, Pancake items on the menu.
