Mon Land is yet another of the Northern-style hot-pot restaurants that have been proliferating in the San Gabriel Valley - waterfalls and paintings of yurts; bifurcated stainless-steel kettles of both mild and spicy broth bubbling in the center of circular tables; big extended families up late, rinsing bits of meat in soup, drinking cold beer, wolfing down lamb dumplings and crisp onion pancakes. Swishing the meat through the broth, fishing out bits of tofu or boiled mushrooms, gulping cold Tsingtao, gossiping - there may be no more pleasant way to pass an evening.
