The 5 Most Popular Sichuan Dishes You Should Know About

Not only are these popular dishes some of the tastiest out there in Chongqing cuisine, but you can find them at Chilli Fagara too!

1. Mapo Tofu

This mouthwatering dish is built on a basic list of ingredients: silken tofu, ground pork, fermented black beans (or black bean paste), doubanjiang (chili bean paste), onion, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and soy sauce. Many recipes on the internet also call for a chicken broth base, a touch of sugar, starch, Sichuan peppercorns, and green onions. It's not hard to see why this is a classic dish - it's got meat, veggies, and great flavour all in one serving!

2. Suanla Choushou (Wontons in Sour-Hot Sauce)

Our delectable pork and vegetable Wontons may not be served in a classic Sour-Hot Sauce but they're served fresh and piping hot from the kitchen, smothered in a garlic-infused chilli sauce that's made in-house and can't be found elsewhere.
