AshaCool (a fish eating cat) Recommends: Jin Gu Fish Fillets, Gangou dry fish aka Xiang La dry fish, Spicy string beans

Jin Gu Fish Curry - yes those are dry red chilies on top

Note: The amount of hot curry in Jin Gu fish is more than enough for four people. It will be way too much for two people. I have had Jin Gu fish in Framingham and in Billerica - The Billerica one in my opinion has a superior taste.

Gangou Dry Fish with Sichuan Peppercorns

Are you always complaining about the low spice level in the US? Are you tired of the predictable taste and menu in a Chinese restaurant in the US? Do you crave for smoking hot food? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions.. Sichuan Gourmet is for you!

Here are a few reasons for loving this joint:
  • The taste is super spicy, hot and delicious
  • This is one of very few places where I can eat spiced up fish preparations in the US
  • My Chinese friends say the food is "pretty close" to authentic Sichuan cuisine. So I can brag about it too :-P
Apart from the two fish recommendations, I have tried their lamb and beef dishes also - and they are equally delicious. The meat is extremely tender and perfectly spiced. After this hot and sassy meal you may want to visit an ice-cream place to balance things out a bit.
