Hot Pot recommendation

emmeya | Feb 8, 2012 08:28 AM

Hi all-I've been feverishly reading all the hot pot/dumplings in Flushing reviews in preparation for my trip this weekend. But, I have special needs so I thought I'd ask my specific question.

We eat meat occasionally but I am super wussy about it (obviously we are going to already be eating a lot on Sunday in Flushing when we taste a million dumplings). I really want to try to squeeze in a hot pot dinner at the end of the day since I love super spicy broth and there really aren't any hot pot places in NC (even though we have almost everything else at this point).

So...the question. If you were delicate about meat (not going to eat any balls or tendons) and don't speak any Chinese (and so run the risk of getting mystery meats) - where would you go? Like...a hot pot with training wheels? It can be in Flushing or Manhattan, we are staying on the edge of Chinatown.

Thanks in advance for your help (and for not making fun of my meat eating preferences!)
