The Hot Pot(火锅) is one of the deepest-rooted dishes in Chinese culture. Platters of raw ingredients surround large pot of broth, bubbling on the table. It’s not just a dish—it’s an experience. Everyone will be able to select their favorite ingredients, cook them to the degree they prefer, and combine ingredients to make their own sauces.

There are many regional versions of hot pot throughout China. What makes one different from another is the broth and the specific meats used. So, it’s very versatile.
