    It's getting cold in Beijing and its the time of year where hot pot is back in. Some say its "in" all year round, but now is defnitely the time where more people start to go. Which FEMALE here is up for the challenge? For everyone else, which hot pot spot is your favorite and why? Wouldn't hurt to try some new spots out every now and then.

    I'm a big fan! I got bored of those "delicate" hot pot like 海底捞, and those "modified" ones like 小肥羊years ago. My favorite now is 宏源南门涮肉, and it is my only choice now. I know one of their restaraut is at south gate of the Temple of Heaven, and the other one is on the lane beside 后海/houhai. Try it, John

    Oh, that's not a good thing to see hot pot thread when you are ready to sleep...

    I'm hungry now...

    The best hot pot I've ever had is the one back to my hometown. The mutton is soooooo great!  For a hot pot,  I always value the quality of meat much more than soup...

    宏源南门涮肉 is very good, but still not as good as the one in my hometown...

    uh, hungry more...

    I've actually had hot pot on 鬼街 before and was quite impressed. Not sure if it was 亨记 though. Guess I'll have to go again. For those who don't know, 鬼街 or "Ghost Street" can be found at one of the subway exits for 北新桥 (bei3xin1qiao2) subway station (line 5). @Marilyy Why do I need a female? Because I'm single and don't like the idea of eating hot pot by myself during the fall/winter. I don't mind going in a group as it would be a great opportunity to meet interesting people and eat some really good food! : ) Yet, it doesn't hurt to eat with a member of the opposite sex in a nice, semi-quiet setting. I just thought I'd throw that out there and see what would happen.

    One of the first things I did in Beijing, when I met a group of new people was get hot pot. It was so delicious and it's such a great way to socialize with a group of people because you ALL have something in common.

    Rebecca ... not too sure about "something", but they are at least sharing one thing that will bring them closer together, hahaha :)

    We went to Dou Lao Fang last Monday week at Viva with my god-daughter ... we ordered a one-person set plus a two-person set (including drinks), and then added a "squid balls filled with chocolate" and "shrimp mud with roe" ... though it was a bit odd to taste hot chocolate while eating the squid ball, it was definitely "unique" and fun :)

    Well, you need to be clear about the noun phrase "HOT POT" This can as well be symbolic of something else especially when you put the word "FEMALE" in bold and inverted commas.

    Spicy hotpot during summer is a bad idea...I had to run out the building to have some fresh air and try to dry my sweat. Tho it was my first time in Beijing, and I was not yet used to the spicy food here, but im not trying that again any time soon.

    Anyways, my first choice it would be 海底捞. Besides it has the only men's bathroom where the floor is not peed on.

    i am actually not a big fan of hot pot, once in a long while is cool but not too often. And still, since we are talking about it, i would recommand a nice place called Tomato Hotpot at Sanyuanqiao, 番茄火锅, that is delicious, especially if you are a vegitarian.
