Do It Yourself, Xian

The Royals and C. went out for a night market dinner in the Muslim quarter. After a long indecisive stroll through the many eateries we sat ourselves down to a hot-pan table, not knowing what the future of dinner would bring. Lucky for us, all we had to do was point at our neighbors' table and the waiter began to bring our cooking ingredients. This is how it works. The restaurant provides you with raw products to your liking (various meat, seafood, tofu, mushrooms, onions, bok choy etc.) accompanied by cooking fat, sesame sauce, cumin and chili. The waiter turns on the gas and the rest is up to you.

Toss your ingredients, season to taste and dip in the sesame sauce.
