Grand Sichuan International (New York hot pot)

If I lived in NYC, I’d be a regular at Grand Sichuan for their two broth (chicken/sichuan pepper spicy) hot pot. I’m wary of dishes with MSG, I think the broths had enough flavor from chili peppers and peppercorns to stand without the chemical enhancer. The sichuan peppercorns are spicy! and have a unique sour flower taste. It’s a spice definitely worth exploring.

For those unfamiliar with the hot pot style, you get sides of fresh meat and veggies that you drop in common broth pots to cook. The best sides were wontons, fresh mushrooms, and spinach. I cannot speak to the quality of other non-hot pot dishes, so venture at your own risk.
