The History of Chinese Hot Pot

Chinese hot pot dates back more than 1,500 years, when Mongol horsemen cooked over campfires by searing meat in their shields and simmering soup in their helmets. Traditional Mongolian-style shuan yang rou hot pot subsequently became one of China’s signature dishes.  Today, eating hot pot is a joyful social event, where families and friends gather around a steaming pot, select freshly prepared meats, seafood and vegetables, place them in the pot to cook (but not for too long) before dipping the hot treats in a choice of sauces.

Hot pots are often prepared in line with traditional Chinese herbalist theories, with dried red dates, sweet goji berries, bitter medicinal roots and fresh ginger adding both flavor and health benefits.

Into the pot go typical Mongolian and Northern Chinese ingredients such as thinly sliced lamb or beef, fresh leaf vegetables, mushrooms, tofu and noodles. Across China, local adaptations embellish the tradition. Among the most famous variations is Sichuan hot pot, known for its tongue-numbing ma la sensation, combining spicy Sichuan peppers, chili, garlic and anise with sliced beef, fresh water fish and exotic vegetables.

RED BOWL dinner is available from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. from Mondays to Sundays. During weekend, lunch starts at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m.
