Hotpot Restaurants in Beijing

Either on a cold winter day or a hot day in Beijing, the Hotpot is always the best choice for you. It is a varied and interesting ‘cook by yourself’ experience. You choose what to eat and the ingredients are prepared and arrive ready to cook.

Basically, there are two kinds of hotpot restaurants in Beijing: Mongolian style and Sichuan style, while the staple of both types of hotpots is mutton (Yang rou).

Similar to fondue cooking, hot pot is a style of cuisine in which diners select meats and vegetables and prepare their own communal meal in a large pot filled with a usually spicy broth. Hop pot restaurants are especially popular for large parties as they create a collective cooking and eating experience.

Most Famous and Recommended Hotpot Restaurants in Beijing

1. Dong Lai Shun Restaurant

Dong Lai Shun is one of Beijing's oldest Hui (Chinese Muslim) restaurants. which is Beijing’s oldest and most famous Hot Pot chain but has been less than inspiring in the past due to its stuffy state-enterprise ethos. 

Besides, Dong Lai Shun has long been known for the apathetic service so characteristic of state-owned enterprises; the waiters at this new branch are much more attentive and almost charismatic, possibly signalling that the change is not just limited to the design.

3. Longshunyuan Spicy Pot (Spicy Heaven)

Hot pot at Longshunyuan is a bit different. It doesn't have as much broth as an ordinary hot pot. Diners may put whatever they like into the drier pot to fry. The combination of bamboo shoots, luncheon meats, broad vermicelli and dried beancurd sticks comes highly recommended. Diners may also choose how spicy they want their meal. Medium-hot alone is enough to numb the mouths of those with a penchant for spice.
