Cheap, accessible and streamlined, Boiling Point is the gateway hot pot eatery for those who have never tried hot pot but want to give it a try. With seven restaurants in California and growing, the small local chain is mostly based in the San Gabriel Valley. Everything about their restaurants, from the Westernized d├ęcor to the artsy customized-made pots, has been designed to make the first timer diner feel comfortable. The large menu features a selection of ten broths that come with the ingredients already mixed in.Toppings are traditional: pork blood cubes, quail eggs, clams, enoki mushrooms, fish cakes and stinky tofu. There is no family-style here. You get your own portion of hot pot, a customized spice level and a choice of rice or vermicelli as a side. They also have lunch specials where the meals are cheaper and the tea is complimentary. And yes, there is a dessert menu: six glorious flavors of Taiwanese shaved snow.
