Is it that cooking is not good? Personally, I think that the whole hot pot has the same flavor, and stir-fry can be varied, and you can order whatever flavor you want. But why does everyone love hot pot? Cause I am a little disgusted with hot pot now.
Not only hot pot, all kinds of stews, grilled fish, spicy hot pot, etc., restaurants with only “one big dish” are squeezing the living space of cooking. It’s just that the other types are generally for customers with less than 6 people. Hot pot can be more. First of all, it is convenient for the store. The big pot of stew is to stir the pre-cooked ingredients and sauces, and then you can eat them when heated; hot pot is more convenient, the ingredients that come up are simply raw, and the customers cook by themselves; the spicy fragrant pot and grilled fish are a little more troublesome, the former The store needs to fry it by itself, and the latter needs an oven. But it’s much easier than cooking one dish at a time in a stir-fry restaurant. The result of convenience is fast. The bottom of the hot pot is served right after the hot pot is ordered. Hungry customers can make their own snacks to cushion their stomachs; large pots of stew, spicy hot pot and grilled fish are slow, but fast. The customer experience is better than cooking. Convenient and fast, and another result is cheap. Cooking restaurants may also need specialized chefs, and the cost will go up. Had it not been for the strong demand for single-person takeout, it would be difficult for small cooking shops to compete with the above.
