Little Lamb Hotpot – China Town, London, UK

This is the real Hot Pot that I grew up knowing and loving, not the recent Lancashire Hot Pot I have recently been introduced to that is essentially a stew (why is it not just called a stew? This is beyond me!).

The Chinese Hot Pot is a bubbling pot in the middle of the table with delicious soups (usually two or more) and you have plates of thinly sliced beef, prawns, tofu, vegetables, etc which you put into the bubbling soups to cook.Β It is a fun, social meal but also extremely delicious, fresh, healthy and homely.

We recently tried Little lamb in China Town which does a Β£22 per person for whatever you want on the menu – you just cannot waste anything. So we got king prawns, thinly sliced beef, tofu, calamari, vegetables, noodles, fish balls and we ordered two broth soups – one stock broth and one spicy broth. And the cooking commenced.

This was the perfect meal for a cold, rainy evening. The service was great and they didn’t rush us at all so it felt really nice being tucked up in the restaurant with the hot bubbling soup in front of us.

  1. Little Lamb is a long time favourite of mine, I grew up on steamboats made by friends of ours every year for NYE, or sometimes for CNY. It was a key part of my childhood food memories and I love the Little Lamb version, takes me straight back.
