[Photo] Hot Pot in Gui Jie

It’s getting really cold in Beijing and the best way to stay warm is to get some hot pot. Here is a photo from my most recent hot pot experience in Gui Jie. Pretty much, the idea is to dump all the meat, vegetables, noodles, and dumplings into the pot and just keep eating. Also known as Ghost Street, Gui Jie is home to over 200 Chinese style restaurants that are open 24 hours.

[Photo] The Art of the Flying Noodle Show

Sorry for the lack of posting this week. But here is a photo that I really like. As it gets colder and colder in Beijing, it’s time for hot pot or in Chinese “HuoGuo”(火锅). It literally means “Fire Pot”. But hot pot is a great experience overall enjoying good food and conversation with your friends. In some hot pot joints in China they have flying noodle shows and here is a photo of it:

At Little Sheep Hot Pot in Inner Mongolia. It takes years to master the art of flying noodles.
