I don’t know why they chose the name “Little Sheep”. There are a lot of other animals on the menu – perhaps Little Cow, Little Chicken, or even Mary Ate A Little Lamb? 😀

Anyhoo, Little Sheep is merely a non-all-you-can-eat version of The Red Pot and Ichi Ichi Fushion Shabu – a Mongolian hot pot restaurant where you cook your own meats, seafood, noodles, and vegetables in various herbal soup bases. They have a fairly large menu that has so many yummy and individually priced items to choose. Their fresh and sliced meats include ribeye, fatty, and angus beef, pork belly and loins, chicken breast, lamb. They also have fish such as cuttlefish, cod, squid, fish balls with roe (see below, my favorite!). Veggies include watercress, mushrooms, napa, lettuce, spinach. These are just to name a few. I honestly did not even know where to start looking at their menu for the very first time. But we were able to narrow down to a few choices and they were all pretty good, nearly as good as Red Pot.

Our half and half spicy and non-spicy herbal soup base for happy cooking!

One of my favorites – fish balls with roe inside that has these bursting flavors upon first bite.

More happy cooking continues. I remember sweating at this point because we were eating this in 90-degree weather.

I like that they have “half portions” for some meats and most veggies for half the normal price. That way you won’t spend so much on something that you might not finish entirely. I like having variety so I feel more at ease ordering more items without overeating. Also, I like that their meats are freshly sliced thin so it’s easier to eat and digest.

I might come back here and go for other items on the menu, and perhaps their hot dishes and grilled stuff, though this hot weather we are experiencing in California makes me hesitate a little.
