We had our first hot pot on a recent trip, of all places, to Dar es Salaam. (Am I referring to it correctly?) We loved it and are excited about finding it back in San Francisco. I did a chowhound search and was surprised to not see a lot, and that Coriya received mixed reviews. I was hoping for some current thinking about where to get it. Please, San Francisco only.

Some Burmese friends who ordered several different items to add to the broth introduced us to the hot pot. One of the items they ordered was something that looked like salt but actually was slightly sweet to add to the broth. Does anyone know what that might have been? They seemed so keen that it added a flavor dimension to the broth.

The way we ordered in Dar was we chose the different items we wanted to add to the broth. However, in reading the local posts about hot pots, it sounds like the items to add to the broth are predetermined by the restaurant. Is that true?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
