red hot & spicy grand sichuan

so my addiction of the month is a restaurant some friends picked to get together for some good chinese food to celebrate the lunar new year.

for all you spicy nuts, you know about sichuan flavor – and you know a place takes its spice seriously when there’s a placard on the table titled: “The 15 Hot Main Courses.” oh baby, are you in for a treat!

one of sichuan province’s most famous dishes is the fish in spicy broth – some locations call it “chong qing spicy fish fillet” or other locations just “sliced fish soup” but basically it is huge bowl with some fish fillets submerged in a sea of spicy broth. there is no way you can finish all the broth — but don’t throw it away! take it home and add more fish (i added tilapia) and have a second (or third) meal. it is awesome!

the other favorite dish i had was the GuiZhou spicy chicken. it has a wonderful flavor and a crunchy exterior. YUM! with all the meat, have a dish of yummy greens — try the sauteed pea shoots.

i was so blown away by the flavors that i went to grand sichuan twice in two weeks. it was just as good.if you like authentic chinese food and awesome spices, check out this restaurant! you’ll have an awesome meal!
