Hotpot

On a cold winter day in Beijing, you may like to have something hot in a restaurant with your family. Then Hotpot is perhaps the best choice for you.

The pot is made of brass with a wide outer rim around a chimney in which the charcoal burns to heat the soup. When the soup is boiling, dinners dip thin slices of frozen raw meat in the soup where it gets quick boiled and then put them into a kind of sauce like sesame sauce, soy sauce, chili oil, and vinegar. The meat can be beef, mutton, chicken, fish, prawn, lots of things but not pork if you are in an Islamic restaurant. Vegetables such as mushrooms, bean curds can be quick boiled as well. Of course, you can also try whatever you like.

Dong Lai Shun in Wangfujing Dajie is a restaurant that is worth mentioning. It was opened in 1903 and is well-known for its Hot Pot with its ethnic characteristics at home and abroad. It has developed an Islamic dietetic system of over two hundred dishes, bearing the features of carefully selected materials, crisp sweet garlic, many kinds of seasonings and blazing Hot Pot.

Nowadays, Sichuan-style and Cantonese-style Hot Pots have spread all over the county. One is much spicy and the other is sweeter but delicious as well. Recently Hot Pot also appears on tables in other seasons. Some people especially like eating it in summer, sitting in front of a fire with an air-conditioner working behind and saying it couldn't have been better!
