I can't say that this is the best hot pot I've ever had in SF, but it is a cozy hole in the wall neighborhood restaurant. The signage out had Islamic writing & there were a couple of Muslim families dining in this Chinese restaurant. For about $100 (with several sodas), we had 3 raw lamb & 1 beef dishes to throw into this lge hot pot with broth seasoned w/anise & dried anchovies. The meat was thinly sliced, but not large servings. You do get lge colanders of napa cabbage, a spinach-like vegt, sm plates of tofu, vermicelli to toss in as well. The meat pancake was far better than the green onion pancake which was doughy and thick. If you want white rice with it , you'd have to order it separately. They were busy that evening & we had to remind our waiter of our soda orders.
Pros: neighborhood joint, different
Cons: parking, crowded
