Inner Mongolia Xiao Wei Yang, an international chain of Mongolian hot pot restaurants, is opening what appears to be its first United States location in Boston, operating under the name Little Lamb. The agenda from a September meeting of the Boston Licensing Board reveals the connection between the Little Lamb restaurant name and the parent company, which has nearly 600 locations in China as well as a few others scattered amongst Australia, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, and the UK. As previously reported, the restaurant is taking over the former space of The Spotted Apron, steps from the Charles/MGH station, and a sign in the window indicates somewhat mysteriously that it is "coming soon......."
The restaurant doesn't appear to have an English website yet, but according to a (hopefully inaccurate) automatic Google translation of the Chinese website, diners can expect dishes such as "imperial products on the Brain," "the pill US combined," "royal goods rib volume," and the very enticing "magic" in what might be a sushi section of the menu. The hot pot section is even more intriguing: take your pick amongst "the delicious incense bacteria pot," "face tomato pot," and "small-tailed sheep secret God stockpot." The overall gist of the menu is lots of raw meat and seafood for your hot-potting pleasure.
