We are going to have hotpot tomorrow! Yay I wonder if everybody knows about hotpot here, it is a Chinese "dish", we have a pot in front of you and you can everything you want in your own pot, usually wemake the soup with some spices and herbs, mostly people like to have meat, seafood and some vegetables, it is good to have a soup noodle at the end with the hotpot soup because it gets all the concentrate of themeat & seafood flavor I'm drooling now

I love hotpot! Specially the seafood variety. I think it is less greasy, and a lot healthier than other Chinese food. Of course I would pair it with young chow fried rice, which would others think is not a good combination. But I love it!

Is there still cold in China? I had tried hotpot before, but it would be good for Winter time, don't you think? Unless you make it in front of a cool air conditioner, and you would try it on a winter environment. I like hotpot too, especially the spicy one. But I only have it during the winter time though.

It is great to have hotpot in the winter, we even do hotpot in the summer with the air-conditioner at home or at the restaurant hehe, I really like hotpot. I'm not in China though.

Mmm it sounds so tasty! We have here some Chinese restaurants and we use to go to them since I was a small girl, and I had never tried one of this hotpots! I´ll try them the next time I go to one Chinese restaurant! Your baby should hurry to eat veggies and fish. So he´ll enjoy it. Blessings!... Dainy

Hi,mermaidivy! LOL!I'm a Chinese and of course I love hotpot.We always have hotpot in cold winter days.Sometimes it can be a real simple dish with just some noodles and vegs and maybe some meat if we have it in our family.If we eat out though,we can add more things and make it more tasty.Already mouthwatering now. I always wanna try to have hotpot in a summer day though.Many people find it awesome and relaxing to have hotpot in hot summer with the AC on while they get sweaty because of the hotpot.

It is also good to have hotpot in the summer, we have the air conditioner on anyway in the summer because it gets so hot.
