We had never been to a HuHot before, but there is a similar restaurant back home that we visit frequently. Here you get to pick your own ingredients from a large variety of choices. Once your bowl is full and you have added your choice of sauce you take it to the grill where one of the cooks grills it right in front of you. You can return for 2nds or 3rds if you choose. You get exactly what you want in your meal and nothing that you don't want. I find myself picking out things that I don't like in other restaurants but not here. The food was great and so was the service. HuHot is a restaurant I will be looking to return to.
