--By Shanzi Chen, translated by Cara Steenstra

Originally established in 1962, Di Yi Hot Pot began its humble existence 45 years ago as a food stall in a roundabout. It was famous for its hand-cut cold meats, coal-burning hot pots and, most of all, its homemade barbecue sauce, which made Di Yi's hot pots very popular. The Di Yi Restaurant, situated in the NingXia Night Market, had a very glorious history and, after a hiatus last year, second-generation owner Jian Jia-cheng decided to use new management concepts and completely renovate the third-floor eatery. The restaurant re-opened in September and the first floor now serves revolving hot pots, while the second floor offers traditional hot pot with a choice of soup bases. A combination of new and old offers customers more choices, although Di Yi's delicious barbecue sauce, soup bases and fresh ingredients have remained unchanged over the last 45 years. The revolving hot pot (NT$168 lunch, NT$199 dinner) is very reasonably priced with excellent ingredients. The second-floor traditional hotpot includes barbecue sauce hot pots, stone hot pot, fish head hot pot, He Shou Wu Healthy Hot Pot and other selections. Thanks to the carefully-prepared flavors, customers keep coming back for more.
