Haruhi hosts the SOS Brigade Mystery Pot Fest secretly at school, as she had promised a hot pot for Christmas. As Kyon mentally commented that he was still too exhausted to remake the world after what had happened, Haruhi mentioned that he especially had to regain his strength after the hospital stay.
The Brigade tasted the dish. Nagato identified it as illuyanka, a high-class dish from Ancient Egypt. The Brigade found it delicious, but Kyon believed that it was only because Haruhi wanted it to be that way, and thought perhaps this ancient delicacy "was born moments earlier".
Kyon was touched, hoped for another party next year, and wanted to bring the recipe to his family. The party was put together with the help of Koizumi's "connections", and Koizumi wondered if recreating the recipe at Kyon's place was a good idea.
Haruhi said she had planned a surprise to celebrate Kyon's return from the hospital. She then made Kyon put on a reindeer costume to perform for them.
The recipe of the hot pot was revealed to be
- black pepper
- ground red chili pepper
- gomme syrup
- chinese cabbage
- shiitake mushrooms
- shirataki noodles
- condensed milk
