Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot (Burnaby) – Good Food, Service… Not So Much.
When I saw the signs for the new Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot go up in the former Sammy J Peppers location across from Metrotown, I was quite anxious to try it out… but it seemed to take forever until it opened. We finally managed to visit the place in early December (after waiting a month or two to allow them to work out any grand opening kinks).
The place was pretty dead when we visited for lunch. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised since the 2nd floor location makes this restaurant a bit inconspicuous.
We were first introduced to this hot pot chain when we visited the Mongolian Little Sheep Hot Pot in Richmond. Just like the Richmond location, I found that the food was good but the service was a bit lacking.
Instead of the AYCE, we got a couple of mini hot pots instead.
G is for Gold Mini Hot Pot ($13.99) includes tiger prawns, cod fillets, thinly sliced lamb shoulder, enoki mushrooms, and yam.
The House Special Mini Hot Pot ($11.99) came with fatty beef slices, bean curd sheets, imitation crab sticks, tofu, and yam.
Both mini hot pots comes with servings of veggies and noodles to be cooked in the free house special broth.
We decided to add the Stewed Beef Pancake ($5.99) to our meal. It was slightly better than the one we had at the Richmond location but fairly average overall.
As I mentioned, the food quality is pretty good here. Plus, since you cook your own food, if you don’t like how it turns out, you only have yourself to blame.
There are a lot of other hot pot locations nearby like the Top Gun Hot Pot located in Crystal Mall (good luck with the parking lot there though).
