After 4+ year, I am finally returning to Toronto for another trip in the end of May. I love Hot Pot / Shabu Shabu and I would like to know if you guys have any good suggestions in the Markham/Scarborough/North York area. Since I will be traveling by myself, I would like to have recommendations for restaurants that serve single-person hot pots. Please let me know of your reco's. I am really looking forward to my trip and thanks in advance!

    Made In China in scarborough...rolling pot, 100 degrees in markham.

    Made in China and 100 degrees are both good, rolling part a bit subpar, but I think i've heard better things from 100 degrees. Made in china is at midland and finch and 100 degrees is at leslie and highway 7 I believe.

        I just got back from 100 degrees. I ordered the all you can eat Seafood hot pot. There was a choice of different broth, some at a CDN$5 surcharge.. I only had the basic (i.e. "no additional charge") broths: pork bone broth with corn + 1000 year old egg with cilantro broth. Both were good and the waitress put both broth into a pot that's divided in the middle, for those of you who may not be familiar with hot pots. I really like the sauce tray on the side with different types of condiments such as sesame seeds, sesame paste, sa-cha sauce, chopped bird's eye chili, chopped scallions, and hot oil. The seafood plate (with 2 head-on shrimps + salmon + squid + 1 oyster and 1 mussel) was really fresh and the meats I ordered were very tender too (I ordered hand-sliced beef and pork). There was some cocktail sauce that was on the seafood plate.. not sure if I was supposed to eat the oyster raw but I dunked mine in the broth because I don't like raw seafood too much...

        Too bad I had a bowl of sweet tofu jelly (tofu-fa) before heading to the restaurant so I couldn't eat much tonight. If I come back to Toronto in the future, I will definitely visit again!
