There are a lot of things happening at Q - a full sushi bar, steamer baskets filled with dim sum, and the kitchen also makes a variety of noodle soups. All of those options are fine, but we normally come here for the hot pot. There are a number of broths to choose from - 14 to be exact - but we’re partial to the classic mala and signature Szechuan chili. They’re both spicy and flavorful at the same time. Be sure to order a few plates of the handmade noodles to go along with your choice of sliced meats.
