Chinese Hot Pot is similar to European fondue. It is believed that Asian Hot Pot originated in the northern regions of Mongolia.
Although there are no toasted bread cubes dipped in melted Swiss cheese, or lush strawberries bathed in rich melted chocolate, Hot Pot offers the pallet a wide variety of flavors. Different kinds of meat, seafood, and vegetables are placed into a hearty broth until cooked and then usually dipped into a fermented soybean & sesame sauce.
Hot Pot meals are often eaten during the cold the winter months and are an integral part of both northern and southern Chinese cuisine that should not be missed. Chinese Hot Pot Restaurants in Qingdao:
