It originated in the folk morning market during the reign of Emperor of Qianlong years [the fifth emperor of Qing dynasty (1368AD-1911AD)]. At that time, the peasants of Weifang County going to the market could not have hot meals to eat. In order to earn some money, someone put a big iron pot in the country with fair cooked meals for passers-by. Because the pot is without lid, people called it "Chaotian Pot". The chef cook pork, meatball, dried bean curd, etc. in the large pot with boiling water first, then lad the hat soup, add some cilantro and soy sauce, and prepared thin cake. The customers could sit around the pot and make it by themselves. To meet the needs of the customers, the chef will mince the cooked stomach and intestine of the pork, and then put them on thin cakes. After rolling it into the fire tube-shape, the chef can give them to the customers. It enjoys tremendous popularity among the mass because it is economical and convenient.
Tips: There are two kinds of famous traditional dishes in Han Chongqing restaurant on the north of Victory East Street between Wenhua Road and Yuhe Road in Weifang—stewed turtle and braised joint of pork in brown sauce.
