Choose from Three Options
- $6 for one hot-pot bowl and one 16-ounce smoothie (a $13.50 value)
- $13 for two hot-pot bowls and two 16-ounce smoothies (a $27 value)
- $27 for four hot-pot bowls and four 16-ounce smoothies (a $54 value)
Hot-pot bowls ($9.25) start with a choice of noodles, rice, or sweet potato, and a protein, such as bulgogi beef, organic chicken, or tempeh. Diners then choose a sauce, such as garlic chili or thai green curry before selecting vegetables. Smoothies ($4.25) start one of two ways: "original," with sweetened ice, or "green and sticky", which adds raw vegetables, kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, and green apple. Diners can then blend up to three whole fruits into their beverage with organic agave nectar.
Inspired by Asian street food, Chef Gregory Owens made the transition from fine dining to accessible, belly-warming meals at his unassuming eatery The HotPot, which also caters to gluten-free, paleo, and vegan customers. Most made-to-order meals at The HotPot begin with noodle, brown rice, or sweet potato, then a protein such as spicy beef, chicken, tofu, or char siu pork. Finally, fresh local veggies and a made-from-scratch sauce such as spicy miso add some crunch and kick to the bowl. The restaurant, which recently celebrated its two-year anniversary, also offers fresh juicing and whole-fruit smoothies.
