Hot pots have become a fashionable way to eat out in Xiamen
Chinese Hot Pot is similar to European fondue. It is believed that Asian Hot Pot originated in the northern regions of Mongolia. Although there are no toasted bread cubes dipped in melted Swiss cheese, or lush strawberries bathed in rich melted chocolate, Hot Pot offers the pallet a wide variety of flavors.
Different kinds of meat, seafood, and vegetables are placed into a hearty broth until cooked and then usually dipped into a fermented soybean & sesame sauce.
Hot Pot meals are often eaten during the cold winter months and is an integral part of both northern and southern Chinese cuisine that should not be missed. Over the last couple of years, hot pots have become a very fashionable way to eat out in Xiamen.
Located at the southern coast, Xiamen hot pots are featured with fresh seafood, green vegetables, and the various flavours of fish balls or meat balls.
Today in Xiamen, the choice of hot-pot styles is almost as overwhelming as their fragrance. There are Mongolian and Manchurian, Beijing shuan-shuan, northeastern "sour-veg, white meat," and Sichuan "numbing-spicy". One can also find Japanese shabu-shabu, Korean kimchi and stone-pot styles, Thai and other curries.
Among all styles of hot pots, the popular ones are Beijing shuan-shuan and Sichuan "numbing-spicy", and "Yuanyang" hot pot (half spicy and half clear).
