Sichuan Cuisine and the Famous Sichuan Hot Pot

Sichuan cuisine is known for its strong flavors. Around the world, many restaurants serve dishes and call them Sichuan (Szechuan) cuisine. However, in Chengdu you’ll find that the flavors of Sichuan Cuisine are much stronger and well-developed. Don’t be surprised if there are more hot peppers in the dish than anything else, and you’ll know it has been cooked correctly if everything is floating in oil.

 

When to go: Chengdu has a foggy, relatively mild, basin climate. Summers feel hotter, winters feel colder, and the pollution seems worse due to the humidity. However many describe the climate of Chengdu as “pleasant”, and it is, compared to the harshness of the surrounding mountain areas you might visit, like Jiuzhaigou and Mount Emei. The best periods to visit Chengdu are from March to June, and September to November. There is substantial rainfall during the rainy season (July and August).
