There doesn’t seem to be that much information about this place, in English that is. But this place boasts both a grocer and a hot pot restaurant. It’s niche organic offering expanded to Shanghai where they source ingredients from their local farm. As you can imagine, this place won’t be your global chain. They’ll focus on quality, which so happens to drive the price higher. I don’t mind when it’s about good eating. It’s a good thing in this town where there’s a hot pot joint around every corner. The taste stood out from them all.
Once we got there, it wasn’t too busy. We had reservations but there were a couple of free tables available. We got the end which was great. I had a few bags that fit great in the corner. Staff was friendly and responsive. Even helping us out when we ordered way too much. When we ran out of room on the table they held off on items until we were ready. And they seem to know how long it would take until the broth ran low. Before I knew it, refilled. Now that’s service for a hot pot place that usually has the wait staff running around refilling and restocking tables.
The place itself was clean and modern. Plenty of tables for large parties as well as counter seating. And most notable, was the fact that this place served individual pots. One for every person. And with all the steaming pots in this place, it felt very comfortable. The air conditioning wasn’t blasting and I didn’t walk out smelling like food. lol. My worse nightmare would be that Seinfeld episode where Elaine gets followed around by a pack of dogs. Glad this place had it locked down.

Verdict: I highly recommend it for good hot pot and I myself will be back here. Probably within the month.
