We went to Jacky's Kitchen for the Mongolian Hotpot, for which they are famous. This is a huge bowl, divided down the middle and filled with an unspiced chicken broth, and a hugely spicy broth. The broth is kept bubbling on an induction hob. Plates and plates of raw food arrive, and you cook the raw ingredients in either of the broths.There is a choice of ingredients, but the best value is the £13.00 per person option, which includes everything you could want, and some stuff you may not want. If you want more of something, you just ask and they bring it over. Our plates were filled with: shaved, rather fatty lamb, white fish, fish balls, prawns, lobster balls, two different types of flavoured tofu, congealed pigs' blood (didn't really taste of much at all), different green vegetables and noodles.
Allow about two hours to eat this lot. It's fun, but we probably won't have it again. The regular menu is extensive, and the food looks good. The staff were very helpful, but their English was limited, apart from the manageress, who was very friendly.
