With an eye-catching red-and-black design as well as a tome-like menu packed with tempting photos, it’s clear that this operation commands your attention. It certainly succeeds in nabbing buzz, as it is a favorite of critics and foodies alike.
Dishing out fiery cuisine true to its Sichuan province namesake, it’s difficult to find anything on the menu without the red chili symbol. This food is not intended for milquetoasts, so if you have a spice-loving pack of friends, round them up, as the sharing-minded food caters to groups. Sup on mapo tofu, cold noodles with garlic sauce or shrimp with a crispy rice crust before readying yourself for the tongue-numbing fish cooked with serrano chiles, cracked Sichuan peppercorns and a piquant chili oil.
