The signature pot has changed. It added the mustard fish ball. It cost more for this fish ball, but it tasted really bad. It has a strong taste also effect the soup. Less tofu and other traditional fish balls It used to be my favorite restaurant, but not anymore. There are other hot pot around more traditional. The boiling point is the most expensive hot pot around the neighborhood, but I felt dispointed. Also, their point card has to used within 6 months, other restaurants are not.

Since moving to this area I've tried to hit as many new and different spots as possible. I'm still learning the cuisines and always give more love to places that help me learn about their food. Love this place. unassuming and kind of small but I LOVE this food. I usually get it to go - there's another hot pot restaurant I go to for sit down - but when I want it on the go, this is where I go.

This location has great access to a huge parking lot, making it easy to come at any time of day. The line can get quite long throughout the day, but the wait is definitely worth it.

I usually get the #10 very spicy, which can be quite spicy to some people, depends on your preference. In the day time, they give you an option of a free beverage, black or green tea. BOMB!

Most of the soups come with meat unless you get the vegetarian one. There is 3 sauces that sit on the table, when you mix all of them together, it makes for a great dipping sauce for your meat.

Remember that #8-10 are pricier than #1-7, so make sure to keep an eye out for that.

ENJOY. This is by far my favorite hot pot joint. The service can go both ways (good and bad) because most of the workers mainly speak Chinese. Good luck!

Food taste good but some of the ingredients could have been better. For example my clam never opened up which means it's bad. For 11.99 you get your own pot already did loaded up for you. It's cooked by alcohol bricks that's pretty long lasting, at least 25min which was impressive. Could use higher quality ingredients though.

Came for dinner but was not prepared to wait such a long time.
Preset hotpot menu with adjustable heat factor for soup. Has other add on items: ramen noodles, stinky tofu, drinks/teas, extra meat, etc. Bring a jacket as temperatures are low due to the hotpots. Prices reasonable. Dessert macarrons were only so so. They have a frequent buyer card and accept credit cards. Parking can be difficult in this plaza.
