About Mala Tang(703) 243-2381 • 3434 Washington Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201
The dining experience at Mala Tang begins with authentic Sichuan appetizers known as xiao chi (little eats). Chengdu favorites included the Dan Dan Noodles, Mapo Tofu and Zhong Dumplings .
For the main hot pot course, diners can choose from a variety of proteins including chicken, lamb, all-natural beef, and fresh seafood; starches such as sweet potato noodles, and a variety of vegetables, then cooking them in a boiling pot of Sichuan pepper-infused broth. Those who are "afraid of the chili heat," as the Chengdu locals jokingly warn incoming travelers, can tone down the mala flavor with a mild version of the cooking broth.
