Mongolian in origin, hot pots—also known as Chinese fondues—have become popular throughout east Asia and beyond. A pot of simmering broth is placed in the centre of the table. Diners spear morsels of food, cook them in the broth and dip them in their preferred sauce. The broth is sometimes served as a soup at the end of the meal.
