Yum Yum Hot Pot NOW OPEN in Terrace Oaks Plaza
$25.97 for adults and $15.99 for kids age 4-10.
The all-you-can-eat hot pot restaurant Yum Yum Hot Pot quietly opened in Temple Terrace on Christmas day.
This new hot pot joint also offers a variety of beer and alcohol, including plum wine and sake, to wash your scalding-hot soup down.
If you’ve never dined at a hot pot restaurant, diners sit at a table outfitted with a metal pot filled with simmering broth and surrounded with plates of raw ingredients like meats, seafood, fresh noodles and vegetables. Diners choose their ingredients from a rotating conveyor belt, adding ingredients to the broth and cooking them to their liking. Fish around the boiling hot broth (seriously, there’s a burn disclaimer on its website) to remove bites with chopsticks, dip them in a customizable sauce and then attempt to smack the entire pot in the hopes of earning a food coma.
You’re basically making your own dinner with ingredients you wouldn’t otherwise have access to in such abundance. It’s a slightly overwhelming, but an utterly Instagrammable experience, especially for a hot pot first-timer.
Yum Yum Hot Pot is an all-you-can-eat restaurant, but make sure you read the fine print. There is a two hour limit to eating and its employees are allowed to charge you up to $14.99 a pound for any wasted food— so eat wisely.
Yum Yum Hot Pot is now open 4 p.m.- 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 4 p.m- midnight Friday and Saturday, at 11301 N 56th street unit #6 in Temple Terrace.
