Hot Pot

Mike is really into hot pot. I'm not the biggest fan, but Mike was craving it. There's some hot pot place in Beijing that he loves and misses. So he decided to buy a hot pot online and do it at home.

spicy hot pot We got a lot of good ingredients over at Super 88: sliced beef, lamb, beef balls, fish balls, noodles, mushrooms, veggies. Everything's been thrown in there. We had a little more trouble finding a good soup base to use. We wanted something spicy. The stuff we found was okay, but not exactly what we were looking for. We also had some trouble finding the right dipping sauce. With normal hot pot you can just go with the egg/soy sauce/chili combo, but for spicy hot pot Mike insists on this sesame-type dipping sauce. We'll keep looking though. Still, it turned out pretty good, and it was a great value for money.
