One of the most fun eating experiences you can find in Dubai is in International City at the various steamboat restaurants, which are also known as hotpot. These are Chinese restaurants where you cook your food in a spicy broth in a pot at the table. I love to go with my family and choose different things from the menu to boil, such as tofu, mushrooms, noodles and Chinese vegetables. The best part is mixing your own, personalised sauce from the selection of ingredients – there are so many to choose from, from soy sauce to sesame to garlic and herbs. There are two restaurants to look out for: Little Sheep and Little Lamb.
