A hot pot, full of noodles, string mushrooms, mushrooms, grilled tofu, seared veggie beef, cabbage, and other veggies, is definitely an amazing dish. Shared among friends and family, it can become a tradition on momentous tidings.
Had this the other day, with family and friends. Stories and jokes shared left and right as we dug into this dish. The huge hot pot in the middle of the table, with an assortment of noodles and veggies at the ready to put into the simmering pot only to be served just as it is put into the bowl. It's a communal dish plain and simple.
