Happy Veal Hot Pot on South Park, Halifax

  • 3

Just a heads up to let you know the highly touted Shaanxi dumplings at this restaurant are only available at noontime. Supper is hot pot only - pass on the squid by the way - otherwise quite good and a nice space in the southwest corner of Park Victoria. In table induction plates so no acrid fumes from those stinky fuel burners. Problem is I just could not keep my eyes off tomorrow's jumbo jiaotze being made in the kitchen within view.

  1. Awesome. I was discussing this restaurant with a friend the other day, but I haven't been yet. It's on my list!

    1. Checked out the dumplings. 18 fried chive, pork, shrimp dumplings for about $15. Tasty - yes, moist - yes, chivey - indeed, pork/shrimp - scanty to say the least, maybe 1/16 of a tsp. See photo for contents!

      1. re: chilibeanpaste

        chilibeanpaste, it looks like they ran out of filling and tried to stretch a tsp. over 18 dumplings haha. I wonder if they are always like that.

        I had the hot pot here last night. We ordered the half spicy / half regular broth along with beef slices, pork belly, shiitake, pea shoots, napa, (2) plates of homemade egg noodles and the sesame sauce for 3 people. The spicy broth had quite the kick so the regular broth was a nice relief. With a beer each it came to about $22/person. I hope to get back soon.
