hotpot in london

London is home to hundreds of thousands of people of Asian descent and as a result, their mark on the city can be seen anywhere from the numerous stores and restaurants to London’s very own Chinatown. Groups of immigrants tend to bring their culture with them when they move and things like food are often one of the biggest markers on any ethnic community. One of the biggest dishes is Hot Pot, a cooking method done by providing a simmering pot of soup stock in the middle of the table, where people then place ingredients into the pot to cook it. Although traditionally a Chinese dish, there is a wide variation of Asian style hot pots available as well. So if you’re in the London area and you have already secured your stay in one of the backpacker hostels or countryside hotels nearby, the next thing to do is to look for a great hot pot place. Try out these best hot pot restaurants in London.
