Mala Tang Restaurant Review

: For those who crave heat, and only the gastronomic kind, Arlington is home to a gem of a Chinese restaurant that has gathered together all the imaginably searing Sichuanese dishes and put them onto its sure-to-please menu. After all, the menu is subtitled “Sichuan hot pot,” and that’s no joke. The lunch and dinner offerings differ slightly, but at both times you can select a hot-pot to share or take the plunge and enjoy a traditional main dish such as kung pao chicken or garlic beef. Vegetarians can tuck into all-vegetable or tofu-based plates, but in either case, beware of the chili symbols on the menu: these tell you how hot your meal will be.
