The hot pot: My favorite food in China

My favorite dish I tried in China was the hot pot. It is a pot where the Chinese mainly put vegetables and pieces of meat. It is a dish whose origin comes from Mongolia but has spread throughout the long Chinese territory. The hot pot is extraordinarily spicy in the Yunnan and Sichuan areas, tell my poor language!

It is usually cooked in the style of a fondue. A pot is placed in the center of the table and vegetables and pieces of meat are added inside so that they heat up over low heat.

There are many variants among them you can find hot pots with yak meat and beef. Among the vegetables there is never a wide variety of mushrooms missing - the Yunnan region would be a kind of Eden for hardened mushroom seekers-

It is shared at the same table and each one adds food on their own plate accompanied - of course - with rice. It is a slight inconvenience to be the only tourist since you must deal with other guests demonstrating your skill with chopsticks.

The day I took this picture, I passed the songs. I have no special problems with chopsticks as long as I limit myself to a single plate but grabbing large pieces of meat or vegetables from the same source to place them on my own plate made it difficult for me. My Chinese friends laughed a lot at my adventures but I imagine they should also go hungry because none of them made an effort to help me!
