Brookline: Sichuan Gourmet

1004 Beacon Street , Phone: (617) 277-4226

Reviewed by: Amy from MA, review #3851

When: 2011

Lip-tingling spicy, fresh and very authentic Sichuan food in a simple and friendly setting.

Directions: On the Boston border, near Kenmore Square. Take the Green "C" line outbound to the first outside stop past Kenmore.

This is a branch of a long-established restaurant serving fiery, authentic Sichuan food. You won't see many "standard" Chinese dishes on the menu, but if you love heat and adventure, you'll enjoy.

Our favorites include the cold noodles in spicy vinaigrette (not like sesame noodles, lighter and spicier), dry lamb with cumin and chili (usually on the Specials board, ask if you don't see it), Smoky Hot Chicken with Cayenne, Chinese long beans with minced pork (the waitress will warn you it is "sour" but it is a great contrast to the other flavors) GinGu Fish Filet (extremely spicy!), Sichuan Green Beans, Shredded Duck in Ginger Sauce.
