A&J Hot Point Hot Pot

8508 East Valley Blvd
Suite 102
Rosemead, CA 91770
(626) 381-8816
More Info

A&J Hot Pot is a perfect place for those who want hot pot All-You-Can-Eat style. It’s $14.99 for lunch and $17.99 for dinner. The menu is pretty straightforward: check what you want and hand the paper off to the waiter. The great thing about A&J is that you can create your own sauces. You share the hot pot with your party, but get two choices of broth depending on your preference. Go for the more alternative sounding broths as they are great accompaniments to any dish. The House Special is like any other broth but the Japanese curry soup base is simply amazing.
