After going to Budaoweng Hot Pot Cuisine, I now realize how lacking my Asian food experiences have been here in the States. I have to credit my HK co-workers with coming up with this outing - they try to arrange these to impress us, and this one really worked out.

Budaoweng Hot Pot (the one I went to) is in I-Square (TST stop) in a high rise office building. It is quite popular, so reservations are a necessity. We had a large group (8 people), with a few vegetarians. So when it came time to order, we got a split pot - one side with a meat-based "satay" stock and the other side with vegetarian stock. Fortunately my colleagues did the ordering, getting a plate of raw marbled beef, a set of seafood 'meatballs', shrimp, rice/rice noodles, and a basket of veggies (bok choy, mushrooms, etc.). Basically, you add stuff to the pot to cook, then fish it out to your bowl to eat with the broth. Occassionally, wait staff come by to add more hot water to your stock pot. The whole process was a bit fascinating for someone not familiar with it :-). It got me thinking if there were some good hotpot restaurants in the US (probably in NYC, SF, etc.) that I might visit; unfortunately none here in my town. Maybe I could make my own hotpot at home....maybe!

I highly recommend Budaoweng, maybe bring a local friend to give you the hotpot basics and to assist with ordering.
