Hot pot is the perfect cold weather comfort meal. So when Horsepowar heard about a Malaysian curry hot pot bubbling up in NYC, you know she had to check it out. Joined by Crazy Rich Asians star Ronny Chieng, Horsepowar gets a crash course in Malaysian-style feasting at Hometown Hot Pot & BBQ in Chinatown. While breaking down communal dining etiquette and DIY barbecue techniques, Ronny explains how Indian, Chinese, and Malay flavors combine to form one of the world's most diverse culinary traditions. Complete with a hot pot master class from Mike Chen, Horsepowar goes from Malaysian-soup simpleton to curry-broth boss in the course of a single afternoon.
