Chong Qing Lao Zao in Flushing specializes in Chongqing-style hot pot made with rich beef tallow and Sichuan peppers, so we’d recommend trying at least one spicy broth when you come here. This hot pot restaurant offers dividers for your hot pot with nine individual chambers, which helps you keep track of what you added and when. There’s also a bar inside with a selection of peanut and sesame sauces, as well as a garlicky house sauce. You can make a reservation by calling 917-563-7171.
