A couple weeks ago, while it was still cold in Boston (It's been 70 degrees for the past 10 days), we all got together for a traditional family-style hot-pot. I'd only had hot pot one other time previous to this occasion so I was a little unfamiliar, but it doesn't take a long time to catch onto how it works. A bunch of people put a pot of soup on some sort of burner, drop raw food into the boiling broth to cook, and then remove the food and eat it :)
Anyway, there were three different broths : Tom Yum, Miso, and Chicken. As main ingredients, we had the following (not enough meat for me though!) : Squid, Fish balls, Beef, Lamb, Chicken, Watercress, 2 different mushrooms, Clams, 2 types of tofu, taro, tomato, broccoli, chives, cabbage, turnip, and some udon noodles. As you could probably tell, it was a LOT to eat.
Here are the pictures!
