YGF Malatang Is Opening in Boston's Back Bay/Fenway Area

It looks like a chain of Chinese restaurants known for some very spicy dishes is on its way to Boston.

According to a source, signs are now up for YGF Malatang which is planning to open at the corner of Mass. Ave. and Boylston Street where the Back Bay and the Fenway meet, Based on a voting hearing agenda page within the city's website, the new eatery will have a small dining room with seating for 18, and based on its other locations, expect to find spicy (and numbing) Sichuan hot pot options at the place. It looks like this will be the chain's first location in New England, as locations in the United States currently appear to only be found on the West Coast. 

The address for the Boston location of YGF Malatang is 137 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, MA, 02115.

[January 26, 2024 update: Our source tells us that YGF Malatang is now open.]
