Red Chilli Sichuan – Alinga street, City – Chinese (Sichuan), a Canberra World Food Delight
Red Chilli Sichuan, really is…very hot and spicy!
Order carefully (one chilli rated dishes only) and everyone will still enjoy a variety of flavours and textures.
Suggested menu for six
Stir fried shredded duck in peking sauces that comes with 8 oddly shaped pancakes $26.50, makes a great starter for up to eight people per serve.
Main Course (one serve can give up six a taste):
Salt and pepper calamari rolls $20 are also great and just a little spicy
Kung pao chicken $16.50 quiet spicy, and good value
Stirfried green beans with pork mince (also good value at $14.50 but quite spicy and fairly oily)
Stirfried scallops with mixed vegetables ($24, this is quite a mild dish, with a nice sauce, but what looks like lots of scallops in the photo are lots of water chestnuts too)
Corkage is expensive at $10 per bottle, but this is balanced by very generous serves of rice and lots of good value dishes that are well sized.
(I’ve also been told that wine by the glass serves are very generous here.)
Still on my wish list to try is the Braised chicken with chilli and black bean sauce $19.80 and the Braised pork with soy sauce $22.5o.
Five dishes is a good amount for six and with three rice serves.
