I just wanted to point out that I make a pretty good Southern fried chicken and cream gravy and I am not driving out to Eagle Rock unless it's really worth it.
Mrs. SinoSoul and I were craving hot pot, so we ended up at Happy Sheep Cafe Shabu & Grill in San Gabriel. This used to be Little Fat Sheep, but I guess they've split from the main branch in China?
We were immediately given rolls, peanuts, and daikon pickles.
Spicy and normal Chinese herbal broths for $3.50 per person.
A woman at the table next to us insisted on giving us her lamb skewers. Liberally dusted with cumin, the skewers were wonderful. Not too gamey at all.
Sliced beef and lamb.
Blood and sticky rice sausage.
Not as greasy as Monland Hot Pot City - San Gabriel that was across the street. I liked this better. Warm bellies. We left happy.
The bill was about $40 for three people.
