With its serviceable blend of cream walls, mahogany furniture, Chinese-themed art and well-meaning service (‘point and smile’ is the order of the day), My Sichuan is hardly a standout, but it does
boast a brigade of skilled chefs from Szechuan’s capital city. Consequently, the food can be relied on for punch and authenticity: no amount of lip-tingling or abrasive chilli fire is spared when
it comes to sliced pig’s ears with sesame oil, ox tripe in chilli sauce, sea snails with Szechuan peppercorns or – as a sticky alternative to crispy duck – shredded pork with soya-bean paste and
tofu pancakes. Diners looking for something more familiar will appreciate sizzling beef in black-bean sauce, while those seeking respite from the heat might opt for lemon chicken. At lunchtime, big
noodle bowls are around £5; otherwise plump for the innovative Szechuan take on dim sum.
Even though My Sichuan hasn't occupied the old school house in Gloucester Green for that long, several effusive reviews in national newspapers have acclaimed its authentic, spicy and slightly esoteric cuisine. I've talked to people locally who corroborated them. So perhaps we were unlucky - but we found it hard to see what the fuss was about.Read more Â»
