#3  Hot Pot

We saved the best for last -- hot pot is a widespread Asian dining experience. A simmering pot of boiling water is placed at the center of the table with smaller dishes of thinly sliced raw meat, fish, and vegetables around it. With chopsticks, choose your meal and cook it in the hot pot until it’s fully browned. It’s fun, easy, and delicious! For more information, see this recipe:
