The Best Places To Enjoy Sichuan Food In Hong Kong

From noodle houses to fine dining establishments, these are the best restaurants spicing things up with hot chillies and fragrant herbs

Fiery chillies and bursts of complex flavours are not the only labels to describe Sichuan cuisine correctly. From numb and fiery mala dishes to complex sweet and sour courses accented with flavours layered with heat and tartness of vinegar, the complexity of Sichuan cuisine is just as variant as the many faces and identities of each dish, moving beyond chilli-oil-laden dishes. Below are our picks for the places that best represent Sichuan on a plate in Hong Kong.

China Tang

Housed within the luxurious Landmark Atrium, Lai Sun Dining’s China Tang may be the obvious answer to Cantonese classics and dim sum lunches, but the establishment’s executive chef Menex Cheung is ringing in a surprising handful of Sichuan flavours. Garoupa, a local favourite fish, gets double billing in Cheung’s execution at China Tang, as he captures the multitude of textures between the fish and tofu in simmered garoupa fillet, tofu, Sichuan pepper, sun-dried chilli and chilli oil. Other recommended Sichuan classics include Cheung’s simmered garoupa with bean sprouts, cucumber, and bamboo shoots in chilli broth and wok-fried sliced beef with Hangzhou pepper and black bean sauce.
