四川火锅

Sichuan hot pot is very delicious and very expensive. The restaurant was really clean and well ventilated. Servers were constantly checking in on the table to make sure everyone’s needs are being met. My host father ordered a variety of dishes including, shrimp, sheep, cow, and even bullfrog. There is a saying in Chinese 入乡随俗, I may have mentioned before, it means, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. So I decided to eat my fill of bullfrog. If my family hadn’t told me it was bullfrog, I wouldn’t have known. The taste is a little different from beef, but hardly noticeable when soaked in a mixture of sauces. The hot pot is communal. One half of the hot pot was spicy, and one half was not spicy. The Canadian in me decided to shy away from the spicy side, my stomach later thanked me!
