Szechuan Food Festival by Hop Woo Restaurant


Hi, I am Yang from Hop Woo restaurant. I bring the new Szechuan food to Hop Woo, a local restaurant at 11110 W Olympic Blvd, 90064. We deeply appreciate Food Talk Central for letting people know about us!
We wish to host a Szechuan Food Festival at our restaurant. We want to introduce not only traditional Szechuan food but also modern Szechuan food. The food is free at the festival however we accept donations and we will give all the donations to the Food Talk Central platform to make it a better foodie community.
I appreciate your opinions regarding this Szechuan Food Festival!

Hop Woo is serving authentic Szechuan Food in the Westside

Introduction to Traditional Szechuan Food and Modern Food

The traditional Szechuan Food is more about Mala (spicy and numbing), such Mapo Tofu, Kung Pao Chicken and Boiled Fish in Chili Oil.


The modern Szechuan Food is more about the use of better ingredients. Modern Szechuan Food uses Mala to create a flavorful and adventurous taste of prime ingredients however Mala is not the sole of the modern Szechuan Food.

For example, this is the Grilled cauliflower.

There is only one type of cauliflower that can be used for this dish.


The star of modern Szechuan food

Youmen Live Crawfish is the most popular dish in China right now. We want to introduce Youmen style to American people. We also create Youmen Live Blue Crab which is a fusion of American ingredients and the most popular Chinese cooking style. I am very impressed by the wonderful seafood in American. The Youmen Live Blue Crab is even better than Youmen Live Crawfish and you can ONLY HAVE IT IN THE U.S.

We invited Uber Eats drivers to try the Youmen Style and they liked it. If you like seafood and can have a little spicy food, or if you are a Boiling Crab fan, Youmen Style may be a must try for you:grinning:


Where do you source your live blue crab? Is it real blue crab or Asian swimmer crab?


Oh this should be fun!


Sometimes, we need to visit many supermarkets in SGV to get live blue crabs.


This sounds fantastic! Thank you so much; looking forward to learning more!


When would the festival be?

Love your mapo tofu with brains!


We want to make it 12:30 pm during lunch time July 22nd. We will post a google form to give an invitation later. People who works for FTC please give me your bank information or Venmo account so that people can make a donation on google form.

Thanks for thinking of FTC! @yanghopwoo

I’m away that day, but I’ll be sure to go on my own to try the special crawfish when you have it on the menu.

I’ve avoided trying places like Boiling Crab because of quality concerns, but I’m looking forward to Hop Woo’s version!

Have a great time errybody! :crab: :shrimp: :fire:


@yanghopwoo thank you! I’m also away that weekend, but thank you for thinking of us! I love your new menu!
