What is a hot pot?
Hot pot is a traditional Chinese food. It is basically a soup with a variety of East Asia foodstuffs and ingredients in a simmering pot. The pot is kept simmering and the ingredients are cooked inside right at table. People eat with dipping sauces and keep putting more ingredients into it. Thus, a hot pot meal normally lasts for hours. Also, people communicate with each other while waiting for food to be fully cooked. Therefore, hot pot is always a good choice for small dinner party with family and friends.
Typical hot pot contains thinly sliced meat, meatballs, leaf vegetables, mushrooms, tofu, and seafood. Hot pot is more like a cooking method than a dish since different materials can all be cooked in a hot pot.
