The new donkey hot pot restaurant, Donkey-Flavored Healthy Hot Pot (驴之味养生驴肉火锅) , is located near Sanya’s railway station and is offering reduced price deals on group hot pot sets.
Sanya Online conducted a review of the restaurant and food. They reported that the restaurant seems clean, fresh and well-ventilated and highly recommended the soup, meatballs and hot pot. This was their first time trying out donkey hot pot.
