        How did it go? I have to admit, hot pot has never interested me enough to try it. For other things HT is one of my favorites on the east coast.

          14 of us had a wonderful time! we chose a divided hotpot, only half spicy, and chose lamb. beef, shrimp, crab, cilantro, lotus root, taro, dried tofu, soft tofu, frozen tofu, cabbage.condiments were stinky tofu (wow! and a sweet and spicy bean sauce. My faves were the lamb, shrimp and cilantro.

            Was the stinky tofu furu or actual choudofu? Furu are small cubes (maybe 1"x1-2"x1")of very soft tofu with a pastelike consistency that have been fermented, while choudofu are much bigger pieces (usually squares, sometimes triangles if they've been cut in half) that are served either deep-fried with custardy insides or braised. They're both stinky, but the latter smells kind of like... the aftereffects of lactose intolerance.
