Plano’s Asian dining scene continues to heat up, and the arrival of Las Vegas’ Chubby Cattle will continue the trend when the conveyor belt-powered eatery makes its DFW debut later this year.
A representative for Chubby Cattle tells Eater that the hot pot spot will open its first Dallas-area restaurant in the shopping center at 2001 Coit Road in the coming months. The shop is a relative newcomer, having opened its first restaurant in Las Vegas just a little under a year ago.
Chubby Cattle owner Hai Bin Yang, who hails from Inner Mongolia in China, developed the restaurant as an attempt to create “the most authentic hot pot experience in the USA.” Yang is so dedicated to his pursuit that he recently traveled to China in order to find lamb that was a genetic match to the sheep that are native to his home region. The spot also serves only top-quality, certified A5 Miyazaki Wagyu beef sourced from Japan.
According to Eater Las Vegas, the restaurant serves up Mongolian-style hot pots on conveyor belts. Each table is fitted with induction cookers, which hold the steaming broth in which proteins like beef brisket, live king crab, scallops, tofu, and more can be cooked to spicy perfection. Also on offer are rice dishes, dumplings, noodles, and a selection of desserts.
Chubby Cattle is expected to open the doors in Dallas in Fall 2017, likely sometime around October.
