The first location of Xiaolongkan in the U.S. opened in the Los Angeles area in November, and a second in Houston soon after. A New York location is expected this summer. The hot pot chain was founded in 2014, then expanded aggressively across China. Outposts can now be found in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
