Chinese hot pot, or 火锅 (hǒu guō), is a meal where diners surround a pot of soup, with various raw ingredients surrounding the pot. Some ingredients include beef, shrimp and rice noodles. There are sometimes even more exotic ingredients like crab sticks! 

As implied by its name, Chinese hot pot is a staple food to eat in the winter. As the northern half of the world is in the middle of winter, the number of hot pot meals is steadily increasing too.

Which Hot Pot Ingredient Are You?

  1. Quiz result

    Beef Brisket

    You are reliable, personable and very mature for your age. In your friend group, you’re the one who brings the “flavor.” You might also be considered the parent of the group who acts as the anchor. 

    However, don’t forget to take a break every so often! Beef that simmers too long in the pot can do no one good.

    Tofu

    As someone who prefers to observe rather than engage, you are sensitive to others and in touch with their emotions. This makes you good at listening, and you may find a lot of your friends come to you with their problems. 

    However, this makes you more likely to get taken advantage of due to your soft and tender nature. Don’t be afraid to be confrontational if you must!

    Chinese Broccoli

    You are as bold as the flavor of the broccoli stem. Because of this, you are not easily swayed by others. Some people actually admire your uniqueness, though it may take a while for others to fully grasp. 

    However you might be a little too stubborn and afraid of change. Don’t be afraid to let the flavor of flexibility and change flow through you once in a while.

    Duck Feet

    Friends might call you quirky, but they fully mean it as a compliment. You are very creative, and your straightforward charm can capture those who have grown to like your acquired taste. 

    However you may also be too direct in expressing yourself, which may turn some people away. Don’t let the haters get to you. Keep the people who appreciate you very close.
