You’ll find a lot of hot pot places around NYC, and a lot of those places are all-you-can-eat. Tang is not. This place is more about quality than quantity, and they have an impressive range of meats and vegetables that you can cook in the hot broth in the middle of your table. There’s beef, pork, a bunch of different kinds of seafood, and other things like lettuce, quail eggs, and sweet potato. We recommend you come with a group and share a few combos (which range from $35-$65) so you have a good range of food. It helps, however, to know how long you should cook each ingredient, so maybe don’t come here if you’ve never done hot pot before. If you happen to love hot pot and feel like spending a little money, you should enjoy this place.

Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong
Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong is quality Korean BBQ and a really good time in Midtown.
Côte is a Korean barbecue place in Flatiron that looks kind of a like a nightclub and serves some high-quality beef. They also do a great prix fixe.
Spicy Village is not a romantic date spot. Unless styrofoam dishware gets you all hot and bothered. Take your friends, bring a bottle of wine, and prepare to spend $10 a piece on some delicious Chinese grub.
