About Famous Sichuan
The team at Famous Sichuan is all about helping guests eat better Chinese food. "Most of [the Chinese food] we eat today from paper takeout boxes would confuse the living hell out of a person in Beijing," says a post on the restaurant's Facebook page. They're referencing American favorites such as crab rangoon and sweet and sour chicken, which have been traced back to recipes created by Chinese immigrants in California during the Gold Rush.
While guests will popular dishes like sweet and sour spare ribs on the Famous Sichuan menu, they'd do well to try some of the more authentic delicacies like seafood-eggplant casserole, tea-smoked duck, salt-pepper frog, or intestines braised with Sichuan chili sauce. To sample a bit of everything, the restaurant recommends ordering in the traditional Chinese style of at least one dish per person, then sharing with the group. But whatever you order, make sure to follow the restaurant's pro chopstick tips—pinch the top stick, wedge the bottom one, and keep your ends even.
