Made in China Hot Pot
Nelson: Made in China is not a great name for a restaurant, but it's hot pot, so how bad could it be? First thing to know is that the price is $24.99 and as usual is AYCE.
We start with the sauces of course. They come around and add soy sauce as needed separately. Otherwise a decent selection with the roasted and minced garlic a nice offering. The most unique one is the green paste, which I'm not sure what it is.
|I don't remember all the options, but we got one spicy soup base and a more regular cabbage one.|
|The special seafood order didn't seem very fresh, which is the most important factor for seafood.|
|The beef started out great with nice marbling, but got progressively worse as the night wore on.|
|The rice section which was AYCE was actually pretty decent.I think I like rice based meals more than hot pot.|
|Here are some apps of curry fish balls, curry squid and tripe. They uniformly weren't very good.|
|One of the highlights of the meal was the corn. Of course they ran out of it. I enjoyed the beef balls here, not sure how they were different (if they were) than any other ones I've had.|
|The lamb dumplings I found way way way too gamey and therefore gross. Some people may like it though. I did like the seafood wonton and fried gluten. In the corner you can see the old mushroom. Speaking of which, the menu had a lot of choices for vegetables, but they had run out of most of them and were reduced to cabbage and lettuce. FAIL.|
|Pork sausage and fish cakes.|
Lastly, the desserts. Even these weren't very good. The ice cream was icy. The mixed fruit with tapioca had no fruit whatsoever and tasted weak. I didn't try the jello, but I hope they didn't screw that up.
I definitely would not recommend this place and will not come back. This restaurant somehow further tarnishes, the "Made in China" label.
