On the first day in Nanjing our classmate took us to try hot pot. It’s when you get raw things and cook them yourself. There was a pot in the middle of the table in which we had 3 boiling liquids – a spicy one, a neutral and one with some kind of taste. So we tried for the first and last time things like cow stomach, duck tang, fish balls chopped so fine that they bounce if you drop them, tea that tastes whiskey and other strange things. And don’t forget that everything is served raw. There were super thin meat slices, which tasted good in the beginning, but it the end I had the feeling that everything tasted the same, because it were boiled in the same taste liquid. But it was fun, was happy to try it..
