MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Spicy Sichuan dishes are the name of the game at this spot, where the staff isn’t prone to small talk or smiles but regulars don’t seem to mind a bit. The food is solid and the portions are monstrous, leaving you with delicious leftovers for days.

The menu is littered with colorful pictures of noodles, preserved chilies, steaming hot pots, sizzling platters, casseroles and crispy rice-crusted dishes. In other words, there’s something for everyone and it’s all made to order. Eggplant with garlic sauce is divine and even simple stir-fried string beans will have your palate tingling. Keep an eye out for specials scribbled on construction paper at the entrance; if you want the fish head, tell them when you enter, as it takes at least 40 minutes to prepare.
