I was in south west China a few months ago and ate at serveral great hot pot restaurants in Yunnan and Szechuan provinces. We went to one in Kunming that specialized in mushroom hot pots. I think they had a dozen or so different types of mushrooms. There was one hot pot restaurant in Chengdu that had a porridge based broth. Another one in Chengdu had a split pot with a white broth on one side and a red spicy broth on the other side.
Can someone recommend a really good hot pot restaurant in Manhattan or Flushing?
