When you walk along the streets and alleys in Chengdu, you will find Chuan Chuan Xiang (Ma La Tang) shops of all sizes everywhere, characterized by red-painted low tables, stools, steaming hotpot and lots of bamboo sticks. Chengdu people just have amazing innovation and intelligence in food! When hot pot was introduced into Chengdu from Chongqing and became popular overnight, no one expected that it could transform like this - vegetables and meat ingredients in hot pot are threaded onto bamboo sticks and evolve into Chuan Chuan Xiang prevailing for decades.
In Chengdu， you can see that many people sitting outside eating chuanchuan on the street. It looks very cheerful. I also went to eat with my friends. I put vegetables and meatballs in the pot for a while and they look delicious. There are a lot of peppers in the soup, but they are not very spicy. It tastes like hot pot, but more interesting.
