“What I’ve enjoyed most, though, is meeting people who have a real interest in food and sharing ideas with them. Good food is a global thing and I find that there is always something new and amazing to learn” – Jamie Oliver
This picture is capturing a mixture of ingredients used for a hot pot. I was unfamiliarized with the overall concept of a hot pot, until a friend of mine suggested that we should try out a hot pot restaurant.
What exactly is a hot pot?
As told by my friend, it’s a Chinese dining experience where we dip different cuts of meats, seafood, vegetables etc. into a steaming hot pot full of broth, with our choice of sauce. There were a variety of dipping sauces that I wished I took a picture of, however they did range from sweet, sour and spicy flavours.
Cautions: Don’t dip your meat for too long, as it make overlook (but don’t eat the pieces raw), and more importantly watch out for the intensity of the heat for the hot pot! You can easily burn yourself if you’re negligent about where you’re putting your hands near.
Location: Asian Hot Pot (It’s actually called that). 740 Corydon Avenue.
Food shown: Various cuts of meat x tofu x asian vegetables x dipping sauces x spicy and non-spicy hot pots
