South Loop X Pot
I love hot pot. This is an elevated version that came from Vegas with flashy decoration and robot service and fancy dressed up dishes with wagyu and tons of fancy food. Tasting menu $128/person – in retrospect we should have ordered a la carte because we don’t like seafood, which is a big part of it. There are even fancier versions – the wagyu platter, other people we saw with huge towers of fancy meat. Love the sauce bar, annoying it’s an extra $4 because we’re already paying so much. Menu comes in Chinese also, that’s how you can see it’s relatively legit. But as husband says, isn’t part of the appeal of hot pot going to a hole in the wall in Chinatown that’s crowded but has great food without any of the fanfare? I don’t know, I thoroughly enjoyed X Pot.
