Tang Huo specializes in malatang, a Sichuan street food of spicy hot pot and skewers that has become increasingly popular over the past decade, but is still pretty rare in LA. The setup at this casual spot in Koreatown is similar to many Mongolian barbecue restaurants, where you pick your own proteins, vegetables, and noodles to be weighed at the counter. Tang Huo will then prepare it as either hot pot or dry hot pot to the specified spice level - just know that the mild one even has quite the numbing kick. Besides malatang, Tang Huo also serves crawfish with the same spicy mala flavor, which are 100% worth all the shell cracking.
