Julianne and I are quite intrigued by this style of restaurant in Changsha. There are usually two giant pots with a golden dragon on the front, and during meal times it is a common sight to see someone fishing out smaller brown pots of food from inside the pots . . .
I don’t know if they are similar to the giant stainless steel steamer cooker tables full of food dishes that I’ve posted about before. I’ll have to ask someone about that later. I also haven’t seen any steam coming out the tops of the giant pots but I think the smaller pots must be hot to the touch because I’ve yet to see anyone hold them in their hands.
Maybe Julianne and I will try eating at one of these restaurants in the next few weeks.
