School break means lunch together for my son and me. This time it was at Little Q Hot Pot in East Arlington and what a great time we had!
Neither of us knew the protocol and our waiter was terrific in showing us how to cook our meats, noodles and veggies. I got steak with cellophane noodles, my son got shrimp with udon. Lunch special hot pot veggies were a mushroom, chunk of corn on the cob, piece of tofu, lots of spinach leaves, and scads of cilantro. We got the mongolian vegetable broth.
What fun for us to learn something new and enjoy fresh, delicious food. The broth was so fragrant and beautiful, I wanted to lean over it with my coat over my head and just inhale the goodness.
I love that my son is game for new things. His chopstick technique gets better and better and we just laughed when our ladles fell in the broth or broth slurped all over our chin as we tried to dig out the noodles in our cups. Good times.
Lunch for the two of us plus two mango juices and a pot of tea came to $26.00. A bargain for the quality of food, waitstaff, and company.
