Farewell lunch for one of our colleagues took place at one of his favourite restaurants - Guo Fu Steamboat 国府珍锅. The lunch deals are pretty good - for less than $20, you get to choose your broth, andmeat, plus you get a couple of middling desserts and orange slices. Like Imperial Treasure, you get to make your own dipping too, and how that tastes makes a world of difference to how your hotpot experience will be.
I will say, the individual pots are good for dining with people you aren't familiar with but I prefer the communal set-up any other day. There's something missing when you are restrained to your silo-ed pot.
