Hot Pot

FU TAI, HONG KONG, SAR, China – Hot Pot is a traditional Chinese meal. It consists of a large pot of boiling soup broth. There is usually one pot of spicy soup and one that is mild. Once the soup is boiling, raw thinly sliced meat, raw seafood, dumplings and vegetables are placed in the soup. The soup is brought back to a boil and the food quickly cooks. Once the food is cooked it is ready to be enjoyed with various dipping sauces. This meal is very similar to Shabu Shabu in Japan. Being a college student, especially one studying abroad, a meal like hot pot is ideal because it is usually all you can eat for a set price. In the case of this particular restaurant it was $98 HKD (approximately $12.25 USD) all you can eat and drink (beer included) for two hours. Not a bad deal.
