Hotpot

February 22, 2008 – 3:06 pm

Yesterday I got the chance to taste a little bit of China back here in good old Europe.

My girlfriend and me prepared some delicious hotpot. We invited some friends, who were a little bit surprised about the exotic food. We didn’t tell them before what we had prepared for them. After all everyone liked it.

For those of You who don’t know what hotpot is, here is a picture:

In the middle of the table is a big bowl with a hot soup. Sometimes (like in this picture) there is an additional part with not hot soup for those who don’t like spicy food. Then all kind of things like fish, meat and vegetables are thrown into the soup. Once boiled long enough everyone can pick the pieces he likes most. There is a fire under the big bowl in the middle to keep the soup boiling all the time.

You do have to try this when You are in China as it is one of the national dishes and highly popular in cities like Chongqing and Chengdu. Invite some friends and go to a hotpot restaurant with them. Add in some beer and fun is guaranteed. Cheers.
