Hot pot warms you up

The Chinese hot pot has a history of more than 1,000 years. Hot pot, refers to several East Asian varieties of stew, consisting of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. hot-pot dishes include thinly sliced meat, leaf vegetables, mushrooms, wontons, egg dumplings, and seafood. Vegetables, fish and meat should be fresh. The cooked food is usually eaten with a dipping sauce.


There are more 20 types of sauce that people can choose.  The mix of soybean sauce and other coriander、chill、sesame paste make food more tasty.

This one I tried in Paris is very good. You can choose different soup for some people do not like spicy. I recommend the tomato soup in the middle of the pot. The red color means lucky  in China while means yummy. The pot with eight angles is the most typical hot pot which is from Chongqing Province. This is a good choice if you want to try Chinese hot-pot.
