The Best Hot Pot Restaurants in Toronto

Winter is just around the corner and nothing is more satisfying than a hot bowl of soup when things start getting chilly. Or a massive pot full of broth for you to dip as many meats and veggies as you like. Chinese hot pot is the variation of fondue that utilizes a boiling pot of broth, typically bone-based and most popularly spicy. You're provided raw meats, starches, vegetables and more to flash cook and consume. Hot pot restaurants have been around for quite some time, but there seems to have been a renaissance in the cuisine in recent years. We've seen an influx of popular brands overseas, opening locations in and around Toronto in the past few years.

Here are some of the best hot pot restaurants in Toronto.
