Q: Best hot pot restaurant in Beijing?

Hi everyone. My parents are coming for a visit soon and I want to take them to a really good hot pot restaurant since they've never eaten hot pot before! But I usually go to average/cheap places that aren't very fancy or impressive, so if anyone can recommend any great hotpot restaurants that'll impress the parents please let me know! Thanks!!!! Love

Ok, this doesn't really answer your question but it will be good 'hot pot knowledge' you can store in the memory bank for future use anyway.

Come out of Bei Xin Qiao station (line 5) Exit A, and head North towards Lama Temple. Stay on the right side of the street, and after about 100m you will come to a hot pot restaurant, which is identifiable by the big wrought iron statue by the door of a man eating hotpot.

Inside it's like a long corridor - nothing fancy, just wait til you see the hotpot! - and the conditions aren't great, but in this place they have a special kind of hotpot. You know normally you get a full pot, or sometimes the 'yuan yang' double pot. Well in this place they have a NINE pot! So nine different broths to try! It's amazing! Plus they have ice cold beers (an absolute necessity) and everything is really cheap.

So if your parents are sticklers for hygiene, don't take them here, but you will definitely impress your Chinese friends if you take 'em to this place for a night of hot pot fun.

You can't go wrong at Haidilao's hot pot restaurant (海底捞). This Sichuan hot pot restaurant is renowned for its excellent service (free snacks and manicures while you wait for your seat!). They offer a huge range of dipping sauces which you can mix and match yourself, and the food is fresh and good quality. The only down-side is that you will have to wait for a long time before you get the seat - such is the popularity of this place.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
