Chinese Hotpot Fun

In which I talk about Chinese hotpot, a lot

Chinese hotpot is one of my favourite Chinese dishes. Well, it’s not really a dish itself, more a meal, as you put lots of dishes of food into the hotpot to eat them.

I’ve eaten it in Inner Mongolia:

Beijing: chinese hotpot

And often in Zhangzhou as well:

Hotpot at home

This time I ate hotpot with Karen, Jenny and Linda, three of my adult students, during an English corner. They were impressed with my knowledge of food to which I explained that I eat a lot and therefore have learned a whole load of Chinese characters and names for food (which come in very handy at mealtimes).

I’m looking forward to visiting Rachel in Chengdu in a few months, home of the original and spiciest hotpot.

Additionally to the hotpot eating, I had some photos with Linda, Karen and Jenny:

And finally an image that was suggested to me by JR of Drifter’s Blog in a comment he made on my post about Chinese poses:

Don’t I look daft?!

Have you ever tried Chinese hotpot? What do you think of it?
