Getting to Know Hot Pot Dishes in San Francisco Chinese Restaurants

For most people, dining at Chinese restaurants in San Francisco, such as Chili House SF, often equates to ordering the more well-known (and widely loved) items on the menu: chow mein, dumplings, kung pao chicken, and sweet and sour pork. However, if there’s one type of dish on the menu that Chinese cuisine lovers must try—which can be succinctly described as “”satisfying, hot goodness””—it’s the hot pot.

The Chinese Hot Pot

Sometimes referred to as steam boat or Chinese fondue, hot pot is a kind of stew that is traditionally served in a metal or clay pot of boiling broth/soup base. The pot is placed at the center of the dining table as plates or bowls of fresh and raw ingredients, including thin slices of meat, vegetables, and seafood, are laid out around it. Diners cook the ingredients they prefer by placing them into the simmering pot, and then dipping the cooked meat or vegetable in a tasty sauce.

Bold and Spicy Sichuan at Any Notable San Francisco Chinese Restaurant

Sichuan cooking (a.k.a Szechuan and Szechwan) has enviably taken its place as one of China’s eight great cooking styles. The term comes from the Sichuan province in southwestern China, where the Sichuanese, even in ancient written accounts, were reported to “”uphold good flavors””—flavors marked by hot and spicy.

Its cuisine today, even around the world and in almost every Chinese restaurant in San Francisco, is characterized as having bold, sharp flavors with garlic, chili peppers and peppercorns, and the fragrant native Sichuan peppers playing up the dominant notes in its dishes. The complexity and pungency of Sichuan cuisine, however, are not without its pulsing, thrilling depth.
