Chinese Cuisine, some say, is the best in the world and Sichuan cuisine, many say, is the best in China. From the world famous kungpao chicken to the world renowned hotpot, the best Sichuan chefs have made their way to the capital to find success, and have turned Beijing into the second home for Sichuan tastes. From super to semi-spicy, these top Beijing restaurants are sure to spice up your life.


1. Chuanban

Chuanban restaurant remains one of the best known and most competitively priced Sichuan restaurants in the city. Their Sichuan cuisine is legendary among locals, crowds are thick, lines are long, and even this doesn't begin to express the fervor at which their food is desired. Start with peppered mutton, venture on with their Saliva Chicken, and finish with a one of many peppery soups.

2. Boiled Fish

With its very fitting name, Boiled Fish's fresh water fish and seafood dishes drip with wafts of seafood freshness yet add a unique and fiery Sichuan kick. Priced at an acceptable 10 dollars (U.S) per person everyone can eat a little more. Beyond its tongue tickling spicy boiled fish (shuizhu yu /shway-joo yoo/), shrimp with scallion, and peppered seaweed are also crowd pleasers, like kungpao chicken and peppered rice.
