Hotpot is one of China's favorite dishes, but the social aspect has made it an unwise choice during COVID-19. Now the famous eating experience is slowly making a comeback.

Peijie Hotpot has welcomed a cute robot to their staff. Her job? To deliver hotpot ingredients direct to customers' tables, reducing unnecessary human contact and adding a high-tech touch to a time-honored dish.

With the help of the "hotpot robot", and other measures designed to keep customers and staff alike safe from exposure to novel coronavirus, this famous Chongqing brand is officially open for business.

Check out Andy's latest vlog above where he meets the hotpot robot and enjoys one of China's favorite dishes.
