La Fu (Spicy Mansion) is another legend among hotpot restaurants in town and is down a small lane on Jiashan Road.
With the slogan "the most Chengdu," La Fu features authentic Sichuan hotpot with a nutritious soup base, well-prepared ingredients and good dipping sauces.
La Fu is often considered one of the spiciest hotpot restaurants in Shanghai and is famous for its volcano-like beef balls.
One of the restaurant's founders, Tao Tao, says they use a secret recipe from Chengdu to make the beef balls.
"We can make it super spicy if customers require, and it may be a challenge to some local customers," says Tao Tao.
One of La Fu's founders is a local TV show host and another is a producer.
Their friends in the entertainment circle are regular customers at the restaurant, which means you may bump into some celebrities when dining here.
