Little Q Hot Pot - East Arlington

grant.cook | May 7, 201010:27 AM     10

This place, on Mass Ave just next to Flora, just opened. I had a nice dinner there with my fiancee last night. We got a two-broth pot (spicy and miso) and a bunch of items - frankly, the hot pot menu is a bit overwhelming with all the choices. I wished they had maybe some more combo selections - things like a tofu platter - to make ordering a bit less complex.

The seafood platter was tasty in the spicy broth (which as it boiled down, got intensely hot - there was a lot of stuff floating in that broth, garlic, ginger, chiles, and a half dozen other things I didn't recognize).

There were a couple of larger clams on the seafood platter that didn't open, causing me worry, but the waitress noticed and replaced them quickly with two more (a tad smaller) that cooked up just fine. We also got some pan fried dumpings that were very well done - nice and crispy on the pot-sticking side, not too doughy overall.

Obviously it was their first night, so they were very attentive to things but still new to the location. No wine was in stock, but they'll have wine and beer available.

I'd go back again.. its a nice East Arlington add..
