Hawaii Mom Blog: Sweet Home Cafe

Sweet Home Cafe

I can't decide why I like Sweet Home Cafe so much - is it because of their delicious Taiwanese-style hot pots, or the free dessert that follows?  I don't think I'm the only one that asks myself that same question.  When the topic of "Sweet Home Cafe" comes up, many will often talk about the dessert first, and then the hot pot. 

At Sweet Home Cafe, you get to choose how much you want to eat, and how much you want to spend.  First you choose the broth that you want (there are over 5 broths to choose from, in the range of about $5 per broth).  Then you hand-pick the ingredients that you will cook in your broth.  The ingredients are portioned out on colored plates, and you are charged by the plate (similar to Genki Sushi).  After you choose your ingredients, don't forget to select your dipping sauces.  The sauces are free and you can take as many as you want.  You can even mix and match.

After you're done with your hot pot, the staff delivers the dessert - a bowl of shave ice with things like custard, condensed milk, tapioca balls, etc. in it.  For me, this is the highlight of my meal.  If I could just come here for the dessert, I would, but they don't allow that.  You must order the hot pot to get the dessert!

Now that the days and nights are getting "cooler", there's no better way to warm up than with a hot pot from Sweet Home Cafe. 

p.s. there is a 1 1/2 hour time limit per table, and the clock starts ticking once you sit down.
