Chinese Street Food 2.0 (Chengdu, China) | Spicy Duck Hot Pot + More
Chinese street food has been upgraded here. I find this all over the streets of Sichuan, but decided to go for a clean Chinese restaurant for this food and travel video. This famous Chinese food, known as Maocai, is very similar to hot pot, except with many more spices and flavourings, and is served individually. It's a famous dish in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. I think it's better than hot pot in Chengdu.

I was looking for something spicy in Chengdu, China, where I'm living. This is very easy to accomplish, but I wanted something other than Chinese noodles or dumplings or fried Sichuan food. I didn't want the regular. So I found this joint near my home and ordered up one of my favorite Sichuan foods, MAO CAI.
It's basically a huge pot full of boiling spicy broth. You point and choose the ingredients you want them to cook for you. It's really fun watching them cooking it. They then take them out and place them into a bowl full of garlic, chilies, sesame oil, chicken essence, and Sichuan peppercorn. They garnish the dish with some green onions and then you're set to go.
It was a wonderful flavory that really brought me right up into heaven. Does Sichuan have the best food in the world? It's tourism is increasing and more and more tourists are discovering the beauty of Sichuan cuisine.
