The chain is most known for their Boiled Live Fish ($42.90++/$52.90++), a classic Sichuan dish that features tender fish simmered in a numbing broth of Sichuan peppercorns, chilli peppers, and a secret mix of spices. This dish is so popular at So Do Fun that it’s said to sell over a million sets each year in China! The restaurant has also received many awards, including the record of having an 11-hour-long queue in one of their outlets.
