Japanese Hot Pot

I went over to my friend, Genki's place, to try Japanese hot pot. I typically eat the Chinese version, where the pot holds plain, hot water to cook your meat and vegetables. The Japanese way is to simmer a flavorful, miso and kimchee based broth and slowly add all ingredients at once.

The ingredients for both hot pots are similar (fish balls, thinly sliced beef, greens, sprouts, etc), but the Chinese typically don't drink the soup. The Japanese version's broth is important and you drink the soup throughout the meal.

It was tasty, fulfilling and quickly warmed my body. It's the perfect meal, Chinese or Japanese way, for a cold night.

Thanks Genki!
