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.

Because after eating a lot of online celebrity shops in commercial streets or commercial complexes (such as Wanda Plaza, Xincheng Wuyue Plaza and other commercial complexes), you will find that most of them are semi-finished cooking package heating stores. Especially the stir-fried dishes in the Internet celebrity complex are semi-finished products processed, and the taste is really bad. But hot pots are generally available now, and they can still be eaten fresh, such as meat and vegetables. It’s better to eat the ignition pot and process it yourself, and you can eat more meat. It’s a lot of sanitation by yourself, and you can also eat the atmosphere. The most important thing is that the more people do not need to be, the less the cost of the pot will be spread to everyone. Rinse as much as you eat, and save energy, environmental protection, and money. For example, Haidilao’s combination of various net celebrities eats. If you are a close friend, it is recommended to buy a hot pot base directly at home and sell the ingredients at the hot pot supermarket to eat for yourself. At least half of the money can be saved to eat the ingredients of the Wanghong hot pot restaurant.

Very simple, hot pot is easier than ordering. For example, for a small gathering of three or four people: basically a hot pot is eight or nine dishes at a time, a few drinks, everyone sits together, a few large portions of meat and a few dishes, and nothing to eat. You can order more if it is not enough, basically there is not much left. You can choose a variety of soup base, clear soup, spicy tomato or even water. You can also choose the small ingredients as you like, and control the taste yourself. The biggest advantage is that the food is served quickly, and no one says you are not good when you draw a full pot. If you are cooking, you have to order six dishes and one soup, right? Have to take care of everyone’s tastes, right? There should be spicy or non-spicy, sweet and salty, meat dishes and vegetarian dishes. Finally, you have to have a staple food, right? Then there will usually be a pile at the end of the meal. If the order is particularly unpalatable, there may be no chopsticks moving. Some dishes can’t be served for a long time, and other dishes are finished. This dish is still being prepared. You are more restrained to eat. For example, if you order a dish that is scrambled eggs with shrimps and green beans, you like the shrimps in it, but there are not two shrimps in front of you. At this time, you can’t run to others to pick up the shrimps. Of course, if hot pot can be cooked hot, to a certain extent, hot pot is more hygienic than cooking, because it is disinfected with boiling water.

Because dinner parties may not have conversations, and hot pot can make the scene less embarrassing. Imagine a group of unfamiliar people gather at a table for a small stir-fry. For example, we all experienced dinners in the club departments during college, celebrating birthdays for class assistants, gatherings of a large group of high school classmates, etc…. The waiter came in and put out the dishes, you took a chopstick, and I took a spoon. If the scene does not get hot, it may freeze the atmosphere when embarrassed (personal experience)… But hot pot is different. No matter how bad, I can still talk about food. It ranges from the blending of soul sauce, to the order of blanched vegetables and desserts, or the combination of various ingredients in Haidilao, or the taste of different parts of beef in the beef hot pot. Even if you are a stranger, you can say a word or two, and the atmosphere will not be so bad as to freeze. So the most real reason is probably that people are more willing to stay at home, and many gatherings are out of being forced to socialize…orz

I was in the unit before, and I ate in the cafeteria at noon. Everyone lined up with iron plates and surrounded a table with a few well-connected dishes. I didn’t eat the dish you made. I didn’t eat it. You didn’t take me, and you did. Eating is basically placed on the table and eaten together, and it is not much different from eating stir-fried dishes in a restaurant. Except that sometimes the leader eats near you too, you don’t want to give advice loudly and martially, and disagree with your colleagues. After work, my colleagues and I would definitely go to eat hot pot. The No. 1 hot pot restaurant is crowded and lively. You can discuss whoever you want, and there will be no ears on the wall because of the silence. Our female colleagues are very gossiping, and which leader and who slept with each other were very lively talks. The second hot pot is easy to increase feelings. Sometimes a new colleague joins our team and goes out for an afternoon tea. It’s not hot when everyone is holding a cup. Let’s have a hot pot. When you next chopsticks, I will get a chopstick. It’s hot and full of atmosphere. Also mature quickly. The third is that it’s boring to eat stir-fried dishes. First of all, there are so many people ordering. Who will order them? Fourth, hot pot can eat a lot of meat. Although Haidilao is more expensive, what if a group of people eat French food and eat Japanese food? I can’t eat a few slices of meat yet. If a colleague who eats a big stomach eats too much, it would be unfair for everyone to share it. Fifth, I’ve had enough in the work unit. A group of people are cautiously eating stir-fried vegetables around the table. After work, we just want to be ourselves, we just want to frantically mix meat with meat and drink beer! You can sum it up, that is, we all love meat.

There are too many choices for the ingredients themselves, which can actually take care of the tastes of most people. The taste is the same. Different dips and different ingredients have different tastes. Personally, I prefer meat and tripe. The purpose of choosing what to eat at the dinner party has been achieved by taking care of most people. Most cooking restaurants are basically divided into major local cuisines. If it is not for the gathering of classmates in the hometown, the dinner parties come from all over the world, and a single cuisine may not be liked by everyone. At dinners, hot pot hardly waits for the dishes to be served, and it is always hot at all times. In many cases, people still choose to stir fry, and more and more hot pot restaurants are the result of the dual choice of merchants and consumers. Everyone’s consumption choices have led to an increase in hot pot restaurants, and the increasing number of hot pot restaurants affects everyone to choose more hot pot restaurants. It’s just a meal. It’s not about traveling to taste local dishes. Modern people who have a lot of choices make choices difficult and don’t want to keep looking for restaurants. In addition, I think it usually takes less time to eat a hot pot than to stir-fry. It’s not about business, but simply eating. Many times, everyone hopes to end as soon as possible. In this case, the table turnover rate in the store is higher, and the utilization rate of the table can effectively increase the profit. The store uses the area of ​​the store, because the main dishes of the hot pot are in the pot, and the side dishes can be placed on the shelf next to it, which saves space. The same store area can have more tables. On the budget, eating hot pot is not worth it for two people. Seven or eight people are very suitable, because the soup base only costs one portion. Two people are still seven or eight people, and this cost is very different, so under normal circumstances, the average price for two or three people is not low. Most of the dinner parties are group behaviors, and it’s quite cost-effective to serve hot pot per capita. ​If you really want to eat specialties, I think you have to be at home, and you can cook local dishes at home. However, from the perspective of which is more labor-saving, it is more convenient to make hot pot at home. But to treat at home, in order to show sincerity, generally people are willing to put more effort into it and don’t care if they are a little more tired. After all, a treat at home is rare. As for the major cuisines will they decline? I don’t think so. Because everyone can search for most famous dishes of all cuisines on major video platforms, but it is more complicated and complicated to do. Thanks to modern recording equipment, thanks to those documentaries, so that when we want to eat it will not become a pity.

Because it’s hard to order food, the “meal” you said should refer to 2-4 people. After all, if 5 people or more eat hot pot, the people sitting on the side can no longer reach the pot, and the food is not enough to grab. It is the most difficult to order on a scale of 2-4 people. After all, meals are expensive now, and CD-ROMs are also advocated against waste, and most people only have one dish. Even if there are acquaintances at a table, there is usually someone at the same table who does not eat beef and mutton, does not eat pork, does not eat fish, does not eat fennel, chives, and garlic, does not eat offal, does not eat spicy, and does not eat food. Raw food, no marinated barbecue, no fried food, etc. Let’s just say three people. There are three dishes on the table. There is a salad for the recent weight loss, one for meat lovers, and one for boiled fish for spicy food. The three-person cross-combination can only eat two dishes each. You said to go to the buffet, a meal cost one to two hundred per person, which is too expensive, and it is not worthwhile to eat less wallet loss and more body loss. Eat hot pot. The advantage is that three people can order 6-8 dishes. You can order whatever you want. You can choose the clear soup or the red oil. You can make it with the seasoning. You can choose the coriander or the fuel consumption. Agree, and decide in detail what to eat when you arrive at the scene. What’s more, take-out is so convenient now. If it’s purely to solve the appetite, even if you want to eat roast duck, roast goose, 50 or 60, you can get it home. There is only hot pot. It is worthless to eat hundreds of times by one person. If several people eat together, everyone can share it equally.

You imagine that you are having a dinner with other people, and there are acquaintances and strangers. Then there is a plate of stir-fried dishes in front of you. Other dishes have not yet been served, so everyone can only eat this one. But some people don’t eat chili, some don’t eat carrots, and some don’t eat leeks and green onions. So this dish is not for everyone. Only some people stretched out their chopsticks. At this time, you can’t eat food all the time. You have to find a way to chat and have a lively atmosphere, otherwise a bunch of people will stare at a dish. You can imagine that there is a hot pot in front of you. Gulu Gulu bubbling, and a lot of dishes came up at once. When you asked whether this dish should be served with clear soup, tomato soup or butter soup, you picked up the vegetables and put them in the pot. Within a few minutes, the dishes were cooked a lot, so everyone started to use their chopsticks. Like spicy butter, like vegetarian soup. Basically everyone has something to eat. In addition to the private rooms of the hot pot restaurant, there will be people chatting in other locations. The excitement of others can also be borrowed and used. What would you choose for dinner?

Because you are not participating in a business dinner or a government dinner. In a formal business dinner or government dinner, you still have to eat fried chicken, duck, fish, beef, lamb, meat, vegetables, soup, staple food, and everything is good because these occasions require Drinking, eating and drinking. At gatherings between friends, it is more convenient to eat hot pot. First of all: Don’t worry about the wrong taste, the ingredients are ordered, and the taste is adjusted by yourself. Secondly: I don’t worry about waiting for the dishes. If there are too many people, I can’t come to cook for a long time, so I’m in a hurry. Also, don’t worry about the taboo. You can rinse everything you eat. If you can’t eat spicy food, eat mandarin duck or clear soup. Finally: Eating hot pot has more atmosphere, do it yourself, and have fun in cooking and shabu-shabu. Before, I basically didn’t eat hot pot. Now, as long as I am not entertaining people, I eat hot pot when I go out to eat. The food on the side where I work is too spicy. I can’t eat it at all unless I go to a government canteen or a high-end restaurant. The rest of the places are terribly spicy. Now I’m going to eat hot pot, a mandarin duck pot, to solve all the problems.

Cooking is not good because of two points. The first and the most important thing is that in the past, a table of Chinese food meant four or six people. You have 12 people sitting now. Why can the serving speed be enough for 12 people to take the chopsticks together? Generally speaking, if you pay attention to the speed of serving, you will forget that there is a basic serving order of cold-soup-stir-fry-main dish-fruit plate. Why should it be cold first, then soup, because cold dishes and soups can give the chef time to cook and prepare dishes. The result of your mess is that more and more soups are given to you with seasonings. The stew will be canned for you, the cold dishes will be prepared for you with industrialized cooked food, and the big dishes will be made for you with deep-fried sauces. The stir-fry is salty and spicy, forcing you to drink more. Second, the general dining place cannot be dedicated to serving you. If it is not the whole water dish, it will not continue in the middle, and there will be free time for you to think about life or be forced to drink voluntarily. The result of the combination of these two is that you don’t need to drink and drink three rounds of dishes to be almost cool. The taste of the dishes is getting worse and worse.

Everyone’s taste is different. I can’t eat spicy food. If my colleagues and classmates want spicy food, they can only eat hot pot. Just pick the dipping sauce you like to taste. Hot pot bottom material, anyway, I eat tomato pot bottom, others can eat anything, isn’t there a four-square grid? Stir-fry is different. I can’t eat Hunan cuisine, Sichuan cuisine, Chongqing cuisine. I can’t eat all the recipes in the restaurant. By the way, my colleagues and classmates still only like spicy food, so I am going to pay, and I can’t eat anything? Hot pot is the most inclusive, and anyone who likes any taste can find food that can be eaten in the store. Cooking is not good. There are many cuisines. Friends from the Northeast particularly hate the sweet taste of Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai cuisines. I am obsessed with all the spicy dishes. I can’t just discuss which restaurant to eat in this life.
