It originated in Mongolia more than 1,000 years ago. Then it went to China and spread all over Asia. Now, it's taking the U.S. by storm. Lynn's talking about "hot pot," a yummy way to share food with your loved ones.

It's healthy, it's delicious, and it's new in So-Flo, at least to some people.

Tiffany Nguyen: "It's a very healthy eating style that people are not familiar with."

It's called hot pot.

Tiffany Nguyen: "A hot pot is a healthy Asian-style fondue where you actually do your own cooking on the table."

At The Hot Pot in Davie, you can share a meal with your family and friends. Here's how.

Tiffany Nguyen: "The first thing we do is, we choose the broth that we want. There's a divider in between; we have four different broths that you can chose from."

Pick out two out of four.

Tiffany Nguyen: "After you select the broth that you want, we have meat selections that you can chose from, seafood selections, vegetables and starch."

And there's a lot to pick from.

Tiffany Nguyen: "If you want to eat meat, you can chose either beef or chicken, and of course, we have a long list of meat options that you can chose from: beef tongue, fatty beef, pork dumpling, chicken, eggs, lamb."

The list of seafood is just as long.

Tiffany Nguyen: "Shrimp, squid, scallops, mussels, swordfish, salmon, tilapia, fish paste, shrimp paste, shrimp fishcake, fish fishcake, conch."

There's tons of veggies and starches, like different noodles and rice.

Tiffany Nguyen: "We bring out everything fresh on the table, and then you actually scoop -- we have ladles, spoons or forks -- you can scoop whatever meat that you want, whatever vegetables that you want, and put it inside the pot and cook."

It's a family-style meal where everything is really healthy.

Tiffany Nguyen: "There's no MSG, no added flavors or preservatives, unhealthy preservatives added to the broth. The level of spiciness is based on cayenne pepper, and cayenne pepper is very healthy for your digestive system. The meat, the seafood, the vegetables and the starch that you choose are served fresh and raw on your table so that you see your food fresh while you're cooking it."

And if you're not in the mood for Asian fondue...

Tiffany Nguyen: "Crawfish is our specialty. We toss it, we do it the Louisiana boil style, and we toss it based on the sauce that you choose, and also the level of spiciness as well. We have snow crabs, blue crabs, king crab legs and also shrimp that we can also boil."

Mmm, serve me up some of that!

    Big, bouncing, beautiful butts: that's what pop culture is currently obsessed with. I can't blame people, though. I mean, I get it. I love JLo's luscious curves, Kim Kardashian's arguably more-than-ample derriere, Miley Cyrus' terrific, tail-twerking ways; I'm even warming up to Nicki Minaj's booty-popping song and video, "Anaconda."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.
