In the middle of the winter night, when the fog covered the town, diners opened the lid of the hot pot. In the steam that blends into the dew, we will discover an unexpected combination of beef, tofu, and milk.

Moc Chau fresh milk hotpot, like other hotspots, the broth is simmered from bones and vegetables. After that, a moderate amount of milk is added so that there is enough milky white color and enough mild flavor to penetrate the meat. To increase the sweet flavor of the hot pot, the chef will pre-heat the corn in the milk. When the hot pot starts to boil, the upper layer of milk begins to thicken, with a fatty taste, making the hot pot like a pot of pureed porridge. This is also when the hot pot sauce is at its best. The broth is milky, sweet with the smell of bones, corn, hot.

The ideal way to enjoy it is to quickly scoop some broth into the bowl and slowly sip your lips. If you are a fan of dairy-related foods, this is the hot pot dish for you.
