Mang Hot Pot

Hotpot in Chongqing City

A real locals' fave with some of the tastiest (and spiciest) hotpot in town. You sit on wooden benches around your table and bubbling broth. Expect to see male diners with their shirts off, beer bottles close to hand. It's just up the alley at the end of Qingnian Lu in the midst of the flower market on the left-hand side. There's a wooden sign with English and a picture of a man. No English menu, but the friendly staff will do their best to assist.
