Beef, chicken, and other hot pot staples are added to the thick green mixture when it started to boil. Meanwhile, the durian broth is said to be a mixture of coconut milk, durian fruit, and even the durian husk.
The soup apparently complements the beef slices with a strong milky aroma which probably goes well with lao gan ma chilli sauce.
According to Mothership, the strange-looking hot pot is likely from Spice World (Xiang Tian Xia) restaurant, a popular hot pot chain in China.
Spice World has been known for their unique takes on hot pot dishes, including the variety of sweet “soup” base flavors they offer.
