    A large chain of Chongqing hot pot restaurants based in China will soon be making its way to Boston.

    According to a source (Geoff Wong), Liuyishou Hotpot is opening in Chinatown, moving into the former Joy Luck Hot Pot space on Washington Street. This has also been confirmed by Eater New York, which says that "two more locations are set to open in Boston and Seattle by the end of this year." Once it opens, expect to see such broth options as a beef oil spicy soup base and a vegetable oil based along with a combination of the two, while ingredients include beef, pork, lamb, veggies, and more. (The city of Chongqing is known in part for its spicy Sichuan cuisine, including Chongqing hot pot.)

    Currently, only three other locations of Liuyishou Hotpot can be found in the United States, including in Flushing, NY, Princeton, NJ, and San Mateo, CA.

    The address for this upcoming hot pot restaurant in Chinatown is: Liuyishou Hotpot, 702 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02111. The website for the chain can be found at
