Hot pot cooking has come to Mills 50, the downtown district known for its abundance of Asian restaurants. Hot pot cooking, which is known by many names in various countries, including shabu shabu and sukiyaki (Japan) and cu lao (Vietnam), might be thought of as an Asian version of fondue, wherein raw ingredients are cooked at the table by the diners themselves.
There are a variety of broths to choose from, including beef, chicken and fish, plus herbal, miso and a spicy Thai version. (A hotter pot?) Vegan options are also available.
The list of ingredients to add to your hot pot -- proteins, vegetables and noodles -- is also extensive with well over 50 items.
