(hot pot/Spicy shabu shabu)
火锅（HUO-GUO)：It is one of the most well-known food of Si Chuan. The history of Huo-Guo can be found from 3000 years ago. At very bringing Huo-Guo just simply bowling food in hot water while the fire is bowling the water.
The first memory that I have of eating Huo-Guo was 20 years ago. I was only a child, but I remember it was a winter, everyone felt hot because of the spicy. At the start, there is only RED huo-guo, which means only spicy soup. We use the sesame oil with salt and M.S.G as the sauce. Every time after you catch a food from Huo-guo, you dip into the sauce and eat.
From late 1980s, the WHITE hou-guo started getting popluar. WHITE simply means non-spicy. The soup of WHITE is made by chicken or fish. In side of it is tomato. People really like to eat what we call "鸳鸯埚" (LOVE BIRDS . Like the picture above, the huo-guo will be cut into half, one side is RED (spicy) and one side is WHITE (non-spicy). People like it because the WHITE soup is very health and at the same time, the non-spicy soup can calm down the spicy in the mouth.
What do we eat with Huo-guo?? You will be surprised to know that we eat almost everything. Everything that you can think about it.The style of Huo-guo is changing very fast. Now, we have many different kind of it, but no matter how it changes, the SPICY will never be changed.
