Here are three top restaurants in Western China’s second-largest city, that are all worth a visit.
Yu’s Family Kitchen
Chinese food writer Fuchsia Dunlop has called this petite, experimental eatery China’s answer to El Bulli. Chef Yu Bo rethinks old-time Sichuan classics as modernist dishes such as river fish with truffle.
41-4-48, La Cadiere, 2599 West Tianfu Road
Yu Zhi Lan
Virtuoso chef Lan Guijun has been called the “new emperor of Chinese gastronomy” who elevates native cuisine to high art. Taste kaiseki-style dishes like pan-fried dumpling topped with “ripped silk” wafer. Appointment only.
24 Changfa Road
With furniture by local artist Wang Hai, TanCa – “chatting over tea” in the local dialect – is a stylish tea house. In the same courtyard, Ciguo does classics like fuqi feipian (beef in peanut chilli oil).
Old Chongde Alley, 1 Chongdeli, Tangpa Road
