The food is placed in a deep cauldron filled with soup spices and charcoal coals underneath to keep the heat. Around the cauldron is a row of pork on stick and small bowls of garlic and chilli as a spice.

Preparing wet thar dote htoe requires some simple process. The first thing is to clean all the meat very thoroughly, the next step is to slice the big meat into small pieces. Each piece is stabbed using a bamboo stick where each stick contains a line of meat.

The next step is to boil the meat for a certain time in a pot of water and add a touch of sugar, seasoning, and soy sauce before steaming the innards until cooked to a smooth flavor. The sauce is harvested from the vapor that appears at boiling by adding a little sugar and soy.

Wet thar dote htoe is displayed on top of a specially designed cushion as a pan cap, although each seller has variations in the presentation. Shoppers crowded around the buffet-style meal. Each stick is dipped in sauce before it is fed into the mouth.
