Hotpot is a must-eat for anyone visiting Chengdu and it is an essential part of eating for anyone living or staying in Chengdu. Getting what you want, however (especially for those who don’t read Chinese) can be a challenge for anyone new to the scene.

We endorse adventurous eating and sometimes showing up at a busy restaurant and resigning yourself to the situation can produce the best experiences, but maybe you’ve been there, or you don’t want to take the chance. ? Mushrooms, rabbit, not-so spicy and very spicy! Hotpot for small and large groups and any occasion..

In our fourth post about maximizing your Hotpot Experience, we discuss the many places to eat Hotpot in the ’Du ?:
