YY is a family-owned hot pot spot in Pilsen, and it’s a relaxed alternative to Chicago’s big, crowded hot pot chains. YY is quiet, there’s never a wait, and the dipping sauce station is just a little cart in the back with peanut butter, garlic, chili oil, and vinegar. The menu is short and all-you-can-eat (AYCE) for $26.99. It doesn’t include any flashy ingredients, but what’s on it, like head-on shrimp and thinly sliced fatty lamb, is quality. The broths are flavorful, with your choice of up to two of either spicy marrow, original, or tomato. Plus, if you’re lucky, one of the owners will give you a nougat candy full of peanuts when you leave.
