There are many regional versions of hot pot throughout China. What makes one different from another is the broth and the specific meats used. In colder northern China, lamb is a common choice. Cantonese hot pot, on the other hand, is heavy on fresh seafood, including live shrimp, oysters, and squid. Mongolian-style hot pot is known for its flavorful broth, which contains ingredients like goji berries, jujubes, and a mix of herbs. The city of Chongqing is famous for its use of Sichuan peppercorns and other mouth-numbing ingredients. (And that's just China—there's a whole world of other hot-pot traditions, like Japan's shabu-shabu, Thailand's suki, and more.)
