Sichuan House specializes in authentic Sichuan cookery, one of the eight culinary traditions of China. “食在中国，味在四川" (shi zai zhong guo wei zai si chuan): China is the place for food, but Sichuan is the place for flavor. Home-style food from Sichuan, a province in SouthwestChina, is most renowned for its “mala” fiery hot and mouth-numbingly spicy flavors; however, the famous culinary tradition is far more intricate.
The art of Sichuan cookery is characterized by the skillful combination of spices and ingredients with masterful cooking techniques to achieve a harmonious symphony of complex flavors within each dish. “一菜一格，百菜百味” (yi cai yi ge, bai cai bai wei): Each and every one of a hundred Sichuan dishes will have its own signature and unique flavor.
