Chongqing's hot pots are famous for being "han la!!!" (very very verrrrry spicy). Not being brave enough to go ALL RED, I decided to do it socialist democratic style and get the yin-yang half-and-half, with one side spicy and the other not. I dunked probably a pound of mushrooms into this pot... quite lovely. And amazingly, I was able to handle the red side just fine.
not for vegetarians
This street-side noodle vendor in Chongqing sells 200,000
bowls of sour-spicy chewy yummy yam noodles every day! It's also known among the men as the place to spot "pretty noodle-slurping ladies"...
