With a name that sounds like the title of a particularly exciting Sammo Hung flick from the early 80s, Hot Pot Heroes, 2800 N. Classen Blvd., Ste. 101, has been on my list of must-eat joints for a while now and, unable to corral anyone to go there with me a few afternoons ago, I ended up experiencing it all by my lonesome.
Man... you guys missed out.
With my mask wrapped tightly around my face, I walked in through the double doors—one glass and one solid—and found a spot off to the side to sit. I ordered a pot of hot tea from the server as I looked over the menu, which offers varied delicacies from all over Asia, but with a skilled specialty towards Korean food.
With my order placed, I leaned back for a moment to take in the nourishing tea, and observe the surroundings. I noticed a couple next to me heartily enjoying what appeared to be Korean Fried Chicken. I quickly called the server back and asked if it was too late to change my appetizer to the well-loved chicken. She told me no problem and, in a few minutes, there it was in front of me.
