    the review of fat bull cafe having an authentic chengdu hotpot is something that's gone below the radar on CH.

    it'll be interesting to observe how much impact the two groups mentioned will make on the future of the food scene in the SGV.

      Probably because she was taken to task for that write-up. The community revolted and called her a pure shill; she may have cried a bit.

      Fat Bull also got slammed on yelp; the owners are from the staff of Chengdu Taste.

      (this is assuming we're talking about chihuo+team). Chihuo is the #1 social media influencer of Chinese food in SGV right now.

        all encompassing reply to those thoughts: it is.

        EDIT: given that chihuo is currently posted exclusively in chinese, that's going to reach and influence folks who may or may not use CH (or yelp).

        She never had hot pot in a restaurant before? What's up with that?

          it IS a lot cheaper to do it at home.

        Where is the wanking dismissively emoticon when you need it?

        (Sorry for the crudeness, but didn't know how else to express my feelings after listening to that.)
