Hot pot is sometimes described as “Chinese fondue,” however fondue is actually "European hot pot." Hot potting, where ingredients are cooked in a steaming bowl of broth, dates back thousands of years. Some say it originated in Mongolia, others maintain it comes from China. Regardless of the pedigree, it’s an extremely popular practice that spread across Asia and now the world. The Japanese call it shabu shabu, the Vietnamese call it lẩu or cù lao, and in Korea porridge is cooked in the pot after the broth is finished. Hot pot is an easy feast to put together and is commonly enjoyed in East Asian households during the holidays. For those who prefer eating out, here’s a list of the best hot pots in Los Angeles.
