Chinese hotpot is a popular cuisine that has been enjoyed for centuries in China. It involves simmering a variety of thinly sliced meats, seafood, and vegetables in a pot of boiling broth at the center of the table. The ingredients are dipped into a flavourful sauce before being eaten, and the broth is continuously replenished throughout the meal. Sichuan-style hotpot is a favourite among many due to its fiery and numbing broth made with Sichuan peppercorns and chili peppers.
Sukiyaki is a Japanese hotpot dish that involves cooking thinly sliced beef, tofu, vegetables, and noodles in a sweet and savoury broth made with soy sauce, sugar, and sake. The ingredients are usually dipped into a raw egg before being eaten, which adds a creamy texture and richness to the dish. Sukiyaki is an excellent option to warm up on a chilly evening.
Ramen is a beloved Japanese dish that consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a savoury broth made with pork or chicken. The dish is often topped with sliced pork, bamboo shoots, nori seaweed, and a soft-boiled egg. The different variations of Ramen available, from the miso-based to the soy sauce-based broth, make it a versatile and comforting dish.
Ma La Tang Soup, also known as Sichuan-style hot and spicy soup, is a traditional Chinese soup famous for its numbing and spicy flavour. It is made with a combination of vegetables, tofu, meat, and seafood cooked in a fiery and mouth-numbing broth made with Sichuan peppercorns, chili oil, and other spices.
