There are almost 30k hot pot restaurants only in Chongqing to date, and you might wonder “why Dezhuang?”
HOT POT IN A NUTSHELL
Hot pot refers to a traditional cooking style based on adding ingredients into a pot full of hot soup. So Intuitive and simple that you can easily find steamboat-like preparations like this from the West to the East.
1000+ YEARS OF HISTORY
The first hot pot was developed in China by Chongqing’s boatmen who used to warm up their tired bodies and hearts with hot and spicy soups where they added several ingredients.
THE MÁLÀ MASTER
Besides the array of traditions and practices linked to this ‘rite’, what makes the Chongqing hot pot so special and instantly recognizable is
the unique spicy and mouth-numbing flavor (málà) resulting from the combination of Szechuan peppercorns, dried chillies, and spicy red oil – all signature ingredients of the
Szechuanese and Chongqing cuisines.
THE 3FS OF HOTPOT:

In a nutshell, Chongqing hot pot is a 360-degree experience that mixes a form of communal eating with good food and friendship, and that, generation after generation, fills our hearts and bellies!
Dezhuang have expanded, and so did our unique selling proposition, but in the end, we never forgot our passion for that sole product that made the company famous.
Today as in the past, Dezhuang is committed to spreading the Chongqing hot pot in every angle of the world.
