Saturday night I had ma la huoguo, spicy hot pot, for the first time. I actually didn't find it that spicy, but then, I like spicy food. A two chambered pot is placed upon a heat sources set in the table. On one side is a spicy broth, on the other side is a plain broth. You select the foods you want to eat (tofu, sliced beef and pork, various animal guts, fish balls, diced vegetables, etc.) out of a refrigerated case and boil it in your broth of choice. Afterwards, you can dip your food in a selection of dipping sauces. Quite yummy. The last half hour I was there, I just sat in amazement. I was stuffed, but these Taiwanese people sure know how to eat. And the girls are so thin!
