All-you-can-eat daily hot-pot special ($17.95 per person, available from 4 to 6 p.m.)

The phrase “home-sweet-home” typically is associated with a place that has a special soft-spot in one’s heart. At Sweet Home Cafe, diners will feel exactly that after feasting on the restaurant’s heart-warming hot pot, which releases irresistible smells throughout the restaurant — just as it does from a home-cooked meal!

Sweet Home offers Taiwanese-style hot pot, also called nabe, and the eatery keeps the process quick and simple so that diners are not waiting on an empty stomach for too long.

First, diners choose a broth and meat(s) (prices vary by your selection). Restaurant manager Takuto Yasuda says the House Special, Spicy and Healthy Herb broths are among the most popular choices. Then, pick seafood, vegetables and other ingredients to boil in the pot, which simmers right at the table in front of diners.

Each additional ingredient varies in price. However, from 4 to 6 p.m. every day, patrons can enjoy the eatery’s all-youcan-eat special for just $17.95 per person.

Yasuda also mentions that there are two spaces, side-by-side, that Sweet Home owns. The second space is available for large parties of 15-35 guests. Call the restaurant for more details and reservations.

With so many mouthwatering choices, Sweet Home’s menu is sure to hit the soft — and “sweet” — spot for all appetites and hearts.


Diners are advised to look out for Sweet Home Cafe’s current coupon special in Dining Out (see page 15). On Saturdays and Sundays for a limited time, the hot-pot eatery is offering a steamy deal, which allows diners to enjoy $15 off the entire check for parties of six people or more, or $20 off parties of 10 or more.
