When I was in Japan, I love to go the restaurant which serve “Dan Dan Noodle”. Dan Dan noodle is the dish  originating from Chinese Szechuan cuisine. It is noodle with spicy soup contain sesame paste, preserved vegetable, minced port, scallions.

I cook hot pot  with similar Dan Dan noodle soup today. I just named this dish “Dan dan noodle hot pot” . Hot pot is good for winter season.

Stay warm with this hot pot soup!
