Sichuan Hot Pot in the Boston/Cambridge area?

Looking for another hot pot option (besides Shabu Zen and Kaze) thought the Improper noted one in Cambridge but am at a loss to find it now...

  1. The most authentic is in Quincy. Little Q's hot pot. It's on the main drag. It's actually a branch of a chain in China. Good to go with a group - but you can also eat at the counter by twos.

    1. Zoe's has hotpot, don't know if it's Sichuan. Sichuan Garden has it IIRC, would call first.

      1. Try the Sichuan joints. Chilli Garden in Medford Square, Zoe's in Somerville, and Sichuan Garden in Brookline are all very good, close to Boston, and I'm fairly certain have Sichuan hot pots. If you're willing to head out into the 'burbs, I'd seek out either Sichuan Gourmet, Billerica or Framingham.

          Chilli Garden does not. Would check Anise.

          1. Could they possibly mean PuPu Hotpot on Main St in Cambridge (it's between Kendall and Central)? I've never tried it, primarily because the name doesn't inspire confidence.
