Here in the most remote provincial town in Inner Mongolia we have had sumptuous meals. Today our guide Serena ordered a hot-pot, a kind of soup that boils on the table. In the pot I discovered giant shrimps, celery,  peanuts, beans, ginger, chili, rice-noodles, garlic, coriander. Halfway through the meal more broth was added to  the pot. Now we dumped in fresh seaweed, mushrooms, green salad, rucola and tofu-noodles. We fished for our personal favorites  with our chop sticks. We got so full that at night all we could eat was nuts, fruit and a bit of a moon-cake.
