Hot Pot at Little Pepper-report

The Turtle Bay Dove | Dec 29, 2008 06:54 AM

Had hot pot at Little Pepper in Flushing last week and since there isn't much about it on the boards, thought I'd post a quick report.

Nice that unlike many places, they had a menu of the stuff you order to put in the hot pot at least partially translated into English. The staff was also super friendly and helpful: two of them stopped by our table to tell us that the beef stomach shouldn't be cooked more than about 10 seconds - and not to put the cabbage in the spicy broth, the latter advice which some of us cheerfully ignored. Anyway, it was good. Not the most flavorful broth we've ever had for hot pot, but perfectly fine and nice quality ingredients to cook in it. I did miss having bowls and individual ladles, instead of just chopsticks, but they gave us one big spoon when we asked and we used that to fish out stuff that was difficult to get with chopsticks.

I really wanted to order other stuff off the menu, since I've never been to Little Pepper before, but I'll just have to return soon. We were happy we got there early, since it filled up quickly!
