The Latest Food Trend in Los Angeles
Every few years, a food trend gets so popular that they start popping up practically on every street corner. There’s been a ramen craze, a banh mi craze, a poke bowl craze, and now the latest fad to hit is the Sichuan hot pot craze.
Despite the summer heat, Sichuan hot pot restaurants have been popping up all over Los Angeles, from West LA, throughout the San Gabriel Valley, of course. In the last few years alone, higher-end namesake chains from China have made their foray into the U.S. by first entering the market through San Gabriel Valley. Companies such as Haidilao, Little Sheep and Shancheng Lameizi have pioneered the trend and have proven to be quite successful.
