Spring In Shanghai : Authentic Sichuan Cuisine

Travel Diary : Simply Spicy Sichuan
After the wonderful Teppanyaki experience - Read about it HERE. Well we decided to try something 'Chinese'. Since we both love Spicy Food.... Sichuan food is definitely a good choice for us. *Well Known for their authentic spiciness*

The restaurant is located at Level 5, Plaza 66. The atmosphere is great and I love the restaurant interior designs. Well it was less crowded as we visited the restaurant during lunch time. Hence the service was really fast and efficient. 

Since this was our first time trying authentic Sichuan food, we were not sure what is nice to order. 
We ordered something "safe".
Due to Aki is on diet and I don't have a huge appetite. We just ordered 3 dishes with 1 bowl of white rice. 

This is my most favourite dish. "Prawns fried with chillies"
Ulalalalalala.... This is seriously spicy!!!! The chillies and peppercorns made my lips and tongue numbed and Not to mention the tears came out from my eyes and literally the smoke from my ears! 
This is crazy and I like it. If you love spicy food.. then you should try this!!

Ok, this one is "Mo Pu Tofu"
Basically it is Aki's Favourite Dish. 
One of the popular dish in China too. It consists of Tofu in spicy chilli + bean based sauce.
If you ask me, I am not a big fan of this one. There is a strong taste which I'm not fancy off.

"Mandarin Fish in sweet and sour Sauce". Finally something that is not spicy and safe.
I just in love with this Fish. Really Yummy and I could eat the whole fish alone.

This restaurant started to be crowded around 5pm. You could see majority visitor are locals - Usually this is a good sign!
If you can handle spicy food, then this restaurant\sichuan cuisine is highly recommended!
We really enjoyed our lunch here, turned out the food was really amazing!!
