Spicy Joint 辛香汇
These Sichuan chili-laden dishes garner frenzied, spice-loving followers

There must be an explanation for all the fuss over Spicy Joint, with its the long lines and the seemingly endless engaged signal you get whenever you try and call the reservation number. Really, how is it that a low-cost restaurant chain with plain decor and brusque service can inspires such pandemonium?

The reason for Spicy Joint's popularity is simply that the chili and Sichuan peppercorn-laden dishes are divinely addictive. From the catfish lolling in chili oil to the blazing-hot bullfrog with sponge gourd -- if you’ve had them once you will forever crave them.

If you can get through, reserve early (like a week in advance at least), or be prepared to get in line for hours to guarantee yourself a table at Spicy Joint.
