北京的火锅

来北京好几年了﹐我经历了许多很有意思的事情。我最感兴趣的﹐是北京的火锅。

我第一次吃涮肉﹐是一九九三年冬天在渔阳饭店*附近的五洲*火锅城。那是一个星期六的晚上﹐爸爸带我们全家去那里﹐想尝一尝火锅是不是好吃。我们一进饭店﹐服务员就热情地招待我们﹐给我们每人端来一个小锅和一个酒精炉﹐又给我们上了牛肉片﹐羊肉片﹐鹿肉片﹐蘑菇﹐粉丝和几种蔬菜。服务员帮我们点燃酒精炉﹐过了一会儿﹐水就开了。然后我们就学着用筷子夹肉﹐菜等﹐涮着吃。火锅的作料味道也很好﹐我们边说边吃﹐人人都吃得满头大汗﹐全身发热﹐特别有意思。以前我们在家吃饭都是先做好饭菜才吃。吃火锅可以自己想吃什么就吃什么﹐一个人一个小锅也很有趣﹐另外涮了肉的汤也很新鲜﹐很好喝。

从那一天开始﹐我们家经常到那里去吃火锅。后来妈妈还从饭店那儿买了十多个小酒精炉﹐家里设宴时也常常请客人吃火锅﹐增添了宴席上的欢乐气氛。我们家不但成了五洲火锅城的常客﹐有时候他们还请我们把新的菜谱翻译成英文。

火锅使我们和五洲火锅城的友谊加深﹐也给我们家招来了不少印尼的客人。
