Just a few short years ago there was almost no representation of the Sichuan (or Szechuan in the states) Province’s style of Chinese cooking in the metro area, but times have changed. The food is best known for the buzzing, numbing quality of the Szechuan peppercorn, little pink balls that pack a wallop of heat and flavor. However, that’s not all to this wonderfully complex cuisine. Crispy tofu, blistered green beans, plenty of ginger, garlic, noodles and the singular hellfire broth that is a cauldron of hot pot. These are the best places to experience the delightful, lingering spice of Szechuan cuisine in the Twin Cities.
