We got back in our Jeep - a two door with the top off, parked next to all of these rich kids Audis and other high cost rides - we looked at each other and laughed. This is so not our seen, lets get the heck out of here!
So off to our neighbourhood we went - and it was a good thing as we were able to stop at the new place on 97th - The 97 Hot Pot!!
They are not used to "the white folk" in there, which made it highly entertaining as we had to keep reassuring them that we did not need a fork, we can use chop sticks. The concept is you get a metal bowl of broth which fits in the table, you then after choosing your delicious broth, order ALL YOU CAN EAT items off of the menu. They have slices of meat, they have their own mixtures of meatballs, there is seafood, there are lots of vegetables - and a whole heck of a lot of fun.
I really would recommend this place to any of you whom want something different, and aren't too chicken shit to come to china town - thats right, I am calling you out! Yes there is a sketchy walk through crowd there - lock your vehicle when you get here and just come. It is an adventure, none of these people are out to get you, and the more we all come out, the less they do! Plus you are all missing out on some really great experience in your own city.
97 Hot Pot is a must come out and eat at place in Downtown Edmonton, Alberta.
Complete with desert - this is "cake" - looks like jello, tastes good.
