There's something fishy about the meat here. It has a weird taste as if it was refreezed several times. I've been to the El Cerrito location and it didn't have the same issue. But, at least the dumplings are good here as well as the veggies. For those of you who are curious, hot pot city is a chinese version of fondue where you put thinly sliced meats, meat balls, and vegetables into the boiling broth. At the end of the meal, you are left with a broth made powerful from all of the essenses of the items you placed earlier. Drinking that broth is the main event before diving to dessert -- shaved ice.
