Northern Barbarians

The guy who sits next to me at work was having his birthday and he said he wanted hot pot. I suggested Dong Lai Shun a Beijing chain which is famous for it’s “shuang yang rou” – thinly sliced lamb in an old style hot pot. He was in.

This is just going to be a series of shots of lamb and eating.



The restaurant’s house brand plum juice.




The old school hot pot.


If you like lamb and sesame sauce, Dong Lai Shun is the place for you. If you don’t like the gamey taste of lamb, then have this “hand cut fresh lamb” that doesn’t have that very heavy lamb taste. It’s not that expensive, and its delicious. The wait, however, is a big thing. We had to wait 30 minutes on a Friday night.
