Sky Dragon Chinese Cuisine | Tucson


Sichuan is a major province in southwest China, famous for extremely bold, spicy flavors.  Known for its use of dried chili peppers and Sichuan peppercorns, whose consumption induces a tingling sensation on the tongue,  Szechuan  cuisine is often mistaken for being just one thing: mala, spicy and mouth-numbing.  But it’s more than that. Authentic Szechuan cuisine is about a variety of flavors: spicy, flowery (Sichuan peppercorns), salty, sour, sweet, smoky, etc. often combined in one dish. The result is dishes with an incredible depth and complexity of flavor, hitting all sense receptors in your mouth, nose, and gastrointestinal system at the same time. Popular Szechuan dishes include fuqi fei pian, water-boiled ribeye, mapo tofu, and Chongqing chicken.
