Chubby Cattle Philly
We all want an experience with our food, and if you’re in the Chinatown area and you’re looking for a great experience paired with food that you would love to try, I recommend Chubby Cattle. The hot pot dining experience is one that gives you options and it makes eating a lot more interactive.
When ordering at Chubby Cattle, you’ll get the option to order a various amount of meats, veggies, noodles, tofu, seafood, and appetizers to pair along with your choice of soup which will come to your table ready for it to be warmed and used for you to “cook” your food to your liking. If you’re not familiar with a hot pot dining experience, the one main thing that you need to know is that your food will come to your table raw, but not to be worried by it. The hot soup that is brought to a boiling temperature will cook your food.
All you have to do is pick up which piece of meat, veggie, seafood, etc. that you’re ready to eat, put it in the flavored soup that you have chosen and let it cooked for the recommended time. The max that it takes for certain items to cook is around 6-8 minutes. And for the items that take longer, you can put them in the ladle and lay them into the hot pot, and remove it when you’re ready.
I will admit that when I first dined at Chubby Cattle, I was a little hesitant was pleasantly surprised by the style of eating and the variety of food. My tip is not to say ‘no’ to the food options just because you don’t know what it is or it looks “off” to you. We tried a variety of everything and the flavors that hit our mouths were immense and spectacular.
