Sa Bo Hot Pot

Does anybody know whether this place is still in business? I've tried to call them several times but nobody answered the phone.

how is the selection/service @ cow compared to lamb?

Lamb has never let me down, but cow seems so much smaller, I haven't dared venture in.

yes it is, i forgot the name when I posted. Either way it's still fat. hahaha

There's a new all u can eat hot pot on Kingsway & Joyce. Across from the plaza with the London Drugs. I forgot the name but it's blue. It says "fruit bar" in HUGE chinese character. It looks kinda shady but I feel like giving it a try.

Ive only been to Chubby Lamb once and it was pretty good overall. But I've been to Fatty Cow countless times, since it's just so close to my house. Really, they are pretty much the same. One slight difference, I think(been awhile since I went to Lamb), is that Lamb has 2 for $1 pop while Cow has 1 for $1.

These two places are owned by the same people though, right? I thought I remember hearing that.

Chubby Lamb has unlimited pop for $1. I prefer Lamb to Cow, the soup base seems better to me? They are not owned by the same people, I asked one of the people who worked at Lamb since that was what everyone was saying.

Also, stay the FUCK away from HKYK, I had the WORST experience eating hotpot there. Chubby Lamb was packed full so a few of my friends and I decided to try HKYK. fucking sucked so hard, it took so long to receive our first round that our soup base dried out and had to be re-filled twice! Non-existent service as well, every time we tried to get their attention, they would just look away and do something else. To add to that, we obviously left no tip on our way out, the head cashier lady ran out after us asking us why we didn't tip, we told her the reasons and all she said was oh ok and went back inside, no apology at all. FUck that joint.

sun tong kee closed because all the rich hk people went back to hk, or they used up all their money. And the mainland china people are not too much of a of fan of sun tong kee.

it was never that cheap to begin with, nowadays only "spring autumn" hotpot is the decent non-ayce hotpot in vancouver

To tell you the truth, i like HKYK because they have a great range of soup base and they have all these stuff (desserts and misc items) u dont' get at other places.

I did have a funny story.

I ate at HKYK with my client. two of us had all you can eat so that's 45 dollars already (unique soup base), we order tons of desserts and some "fried fish skins" our bill came to 90 dollars for two people so it was decent. We had a few pieces of meat left that we cant' finish. the OWNER came up when we wanted to bill and says: "you need to finish this or else I am going to charge you"

Since my customer was there, i decided to play a game.
Me: "you're going to charge me with 2 pieces of beef and some veggies?
Owner: "yeah, you have to finish it or else we have to charge"
Me: "OK, i'm really full, so sure, please charge me, can you tell me how much you're charge me?"
Owner: "No, what i mean is, just eat it and I won't charge you"
Me: "NO, my client here is really full, I WANT you to charge me, how much will it be? 10 bucks? 20 ?"
Owner: ".............., errrr, i guess 8 bucks"
Me: "OK, i approve that you may charge me 8 bucks"
Owner: * speechless

Owner came back saw the bill. 2 people all you can eat was like 32 dollars, but our bill was close to 90 bucks. she said: "oh, I didn't charge you for the extra food"

what a pussyyyyy, i wish they would have charged me. i wouldn't care, and I woudl love to see what it show sup on the bill.
