Sorry for the lack of post, as I was in the land of street food heaven: Taiwan. I will definitely be posting some yummy restaurants and recommendation in the coming month. In the mean time, here is a restaurant I went before I left for Taiwan.
Right before I left for Taiwan, R and I decide the weather was perfect for hot pot, but Richmond was simply too out of the way, thus we ended up at the Burnaby location for Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot. This location is definitely spacious with high ceiling. For the soup base, we chose the double soup base for $9.99.

Their vegetables and mushrooms were fresh and clean. The only problem is the portion size, as these were some huge slices that we weren't use to it. Because of this we ended up with way more than we wanted. On top of that, sometime they doubled or even tripled our ordered.

The meat was semi thawed and thinly sliced. Once again we ordered only 10 slice for both lamb and beef, but clearly much more were given to us. The quality was good. The same can be said about the fish and the chicken as well.
The menu was certainly extensive with lots of choice. They even had fresh hand made meat balls and dumplings. I particularly liked the fresh fish and lamb balls.
On top of all the stuff you can order for the hot pot, they also had a few ready to eat items as well, such as Sichuan kimchi and stir fried shredded potato. All I can say is order carefully here, because we could barely finish everything. Also if they bring you extra, it's best to let them know, because they can actually charge you if you don't finish everything.

Overall, for $20/person + soup base, I think it's a alright deal, as they don't include any sort of drink. The food was fresh and tasty. The only 2 complaints I have is their portion size and the smell. Depsite having high ceiling, the ventilation was still pretty bad. The spicies used in the soup will certainly stick around for days, so just make sure to wash your cloth right away. One other thing, this place is popular, so make sure to make reservation.
