So let me break this down. Sichuan is a province in southwest China known for its spicy food. ‘Ren’ in chinese means people and it’s open 24 hours. This place was super good. Hot pot style, of course, with a multitude of dishes ranging from straight up meat, shrimp balls, an assortment of vegetables, and finished off with pickled cabbage and mushrooms. There was a spicy and non spicy broth with a mushroom soup in the circular middle bowl. Hot pot never fails to please.
