Describe a meal you invited others to have at your home or in a restaurant. You should say:
Who you invited
Where you ate
What you ate
and explain how they felt about this meal
When you ask me to describe a memorable meal I invited others to have, the first that came to mind is my latest birthday dinner at a hot pot restaurant. Usually on my birthdays, I have some sort of get-together with my friends, whether it’s a casual dinner party at my apartment or an exciting night out. But for my last birthday, I decided to take my friends out to hot pot—a truly unforgettable experience.
As for who I invited to my birthday dinner, I invited some of my friends from university and a few of my high school classmates I was still in touch with. Anyway, we ate an old authentic Chongqing hot pot restaurant in the farther out district of Hongkou, popular among hot pot aficionados. The interior itself wasn’t fancy at all—I mean, there was hardly any interior décor, the walls were all bare, and the air conditioning occasionally stopped working. Yet, the atmosphere was bustling and full of the scent of spicy simmering broth.
Since this was, after all, Chongqing hot pot, there was no way we’d turn down their infamous spicy pot. We ordered a pot with two chambers—one with a mild broth and the other with a fiery soup base made of pepper oil sauce and chilies. Gradually, we put in pieces of meat, fish balls, giblets, vegetables, tofu, and noodles. When it came time to eat, I have to admit that I chickened out and only ate from the mild broth at first. With a little pushing and prodding, I tried some fried tofu skin from the spicy pot, but it felt like my tongue was on fire so I gave up.
To wrap things up, my friends definitely enjoyed the experience. Their spice tolerance is leagues above my own, and the whole time they were laughing at me guzzling glass after glass of water. Okay, so maybe I felt a little exposed, but it was still a really fun time.
