Lonely Planet review

Chuànchuàn xiāng, is Chéngdū’s version of the Chóngqìng hotpot, and this lively open-fronted branch of the popular Yùlín chain is packed in the evenings with a hungry student crowd from nearby Sìchuān University. First, choose the broth you want to cook your skewers in: either hóng guō (红锅; spicy; ¥20) or yuānyang guō (鸳鸯锅; half-spicy, half-clear split pot; ¥25). Then grab whatever skewers you fancy from a side room before cooking them yourself at your table. Staff will count up how many skewers you’ve eaten at the end of your meal. The garlic and chilli dipping sauce is ¥3 extra. There’s another, slightly smaller branch near youth hostel Traffic Inn, which is equally good.
