  1. Can you please advise how much water to use? We made the miso dashi broth (didn’t even use a whole lot of water) and it came out virtually flavorless ☹️ We had to keep dumping in extra miso and then couldn’t even taste the dashi flavor. Full recipe quantities would be immensely helpful!

  2. Thousand years of Chinese history is full of famine and starvation, it must be due to two main reasons first is war and second is the damn expensive Hot Pot ingredients which only the high class people could afford it, cause you know 200 hundred years ago spices worth more than gold, let alone 1000 years ago.

  3. Great Video! Thank you so much for the recipes. Just as a PSA though… I wouldn't recommend that pot or the burner. The reviews for both items are really terrible… pot seems to fail leak test often, rusts easy in weld gap area for the divider… and the burner apparently has a bad habit of melting itself.

  4. I can't stop salivating. I want to make all of them, but my nearest Asian grocer is almost 2 hours away since I moved and I can't get a lot of these ingredients elsewhere. Why can't US groceries just learn that spices and diverse ingredients are worth stocking? I can get a multiyear aged imported Italian cheese no problem, but God help me if I want to get something as simple as gochugaru or even stock bones without taking a road trip

  5. Whaaat are you frigging kidding me? Huoguo pot is This easy to make??

    You fellers just sent me on a mission to United Food mart (new Asian Market near me)..
    You need a proper hot-pot device though, if you want to be "classy" I guess. That's ok, they sell them there

  6. Carmen and family, lead us into New Year! Nothing could make me happier. I don’t really cook, can you give us a few New Year menu suggestions to order? I would like to make y’all my “first guest on YouTube” for the Lunar New Year.

  7. We love hotpot too. Our hot pot season is pretty much over unless we do it with the air conditioning on hahahaha.
    The beef bone and tomato one is definitely on my list to try next time.. great for the kids. I like the spice soup based like mala, Tom yum, satay. For those I usually use store bought soup bases.. the Little Sheep brand of the Mala soup base is my favourite.
