Hot Pot Scuffle: Miu's Cuisine vs. New Hong Kong

If you've ever had a hot pot, then you know it's as much about the show as it is the rich, flavorful, and totally unique culinary experience. This Chinese classic is served in clay pots, metal pots, and even big metal bowls, but no matter what kind of pot, it must be sizzling-hot.
