[Cheap Eat: Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot] Sharing is Caring

mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 10Is it -45 degrees Celsius outside?

No worries; it’s hot pot time!mongolian hot pot montreal food snobLittle Sheep is a chain with over 300 restaurants around the world, but there’s only one in Montreal (two, if you count Brossard). It’s far from fancy, but it’s definitely a sure bet for cheap eats on one of those cold Arctic nights.

The concept is simple: bring a friend, choose a broth, order ingredients, et voilà. Each table is equipped with a central pot of stock to allow you to cook everything you fancy. All you can eat noodles mushrooms (shiitake, white, straw) and tofu (fresh, deep-fried) are available at your fingertips – and Little Sheep even throws in some special extras in the evenings, including serious clams, fried fish cakes, squid, mussels, shrimps, beef stomach (woohoo!), etc., etc. If you suspect your friends are coming down with a cold, there are also tables with individual hotplates. Otherwise, sharing is more fun. We went for a big yin-yang pot. Half clear, half spicy, the broth was delicious. Not burning hot, but extremely savory, we all dreamed about it the morning after.

And the best part: the price. All you can eat for around $15 (+tx and tips) at lunch and $20 in the evenings. It’s even open on weekends, which makes it a great alternative to your eggs and bacon Sunday brunches. With that kind of price, don’t expect the service of the century. It’s usually decent, but just in case, be prepared to play hide and seek with the waiters.mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 1 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 9 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 8 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 4 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 7 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 6 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 5 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 3 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob 2 mongolian hot pot montreal food snob mongolian hot pot montreal food snob
