Si Chuan cuisine is popular all over the world. When you mention Si Chuan cuisine, what do you think of? Is it particularly spicy, giving your taste buds a “numbing” feeling? But did you know that Sichuan cuisine also has sweet and sour flavors? Yes, they have.
Originating in the province of Si Chuan, Si Chuan cuisine has bold flavors, especially spiciness and spiciness created by the generous use of Sichuan peppercorns, broad bean chili paste, black pepper, shallots and garlic. These must-have ingredients are the secret to the rich flavors of Sichuan cuisine.
Once Si Chuan cuisine was introduced to Malaysia, it set off a frenzy of Si Chuan cuisine. It is no surprise that more and more Si Chuan cuisine restaurants have entered the hearts of many people.
For all you foodies out there looking to challenge your taste buds with these blazingly spicy treats, here’s a list of Si Chuan restaurants you should try. Maybe these restaurants will be on your food list next time you visit Johor Bahru
Tiong Hua Restaurant
Tiong Hua Restaurant is a great place to try Si Chuan and Hunan cuisines together. You can select the level of spice you like when you order.
The steamed fish flesh with chili sauce is a must-order. The red and delicious gravy is topped with steamed fish flesh and more garlic to make it more appealing and more spicy. Tiong Hua Restaurant uses only the best fish to make this spicy dish.
This allows their guests to enjoy the natural sweetness in the fish flesh with every bite. Si Chuan cuisine allows you to finish a large bowl of white rice with only the fish flesh and delicious gravy.
Stir-Fry Chicken Inner Part is also available. This inner part is fried with lots of dried chilies, Sichuan peppercorn and fried. Stir-fried chicken inner parts are very chewy and cooked until the sauce has absorbed into the chicken. Enjoy this Si Chuan-inspired spicy and delicious cuisine by opening a can of cold beer.
Tiong Hua Restaurant also recommends Ma Po Tofu, or ‘Pockmarked Granny’ Beancurd. Their Ma Po Tofu, despite its fiery red appearance is not too spicy or oily because it is cooked with a chili-based sauce. This dish is also rich in minced meat and tofu, which makes it well worth the cost.
It is also worth trying the potato slices or steam tofu, which are both delicious and affordable. The majority of the dishes cost less than RM35, with the exception of some special dishes made with fish head, beef and frog. Tiong Hua mini mart is available in the same row if you are interested in Si Chuan cooking at home. It sells all Si Chuan ingredients that are not easily found in grocery stores and local supermarkets.

If you are a fan of spicy food, Wu Han Restaurant is a good choice. Wu Han Restaurant serves Si Chuan cuisine, which is one of the most loved Chinese cuisines.
Wu Han Restaurant offers Si Chuan cuisines in hot and spicy. It is always packed with people who are eager to challenge their taste buds and stimulate their senses with spicy and hot. You can choose the level of spice you want when ordering. If you can eat spicy food, you’re welcome to try their extreme spicy foods to have some ‘tingly-numbing moments’.
You will be satisfied if you order their Kung Pao Chicken. Kung Pao Chicken is made by deep-frying boneless, seasoned chicken pieces with plenty of dried red peppers and golden peanuts. It’s spicy and addictive. This Si Chuan delight can be enjoyed with white rice, since the natural sweetness of white rice would temper the spicy Kung Pao Chicken.

- Yi Ping Xiang
Si Chuan steamed fish is a unique way to challenge your taste buds. The steamed fish will still taste sweet, despite the red hot sauce. You can also choose how spicy you want your fish to be when you order. You will most likely order again!
Their Si Chuan Spicy Crustaceans are another recommended dish from Yi Ping Xiang. Crustaceans are also called the little lobster in China. They are often cooked in a Si Chuan hot sauce that is extremely spicy and can be referred to as “ma xiao” (spicy little lobster).
Although it has a chewier texture than prawns or shrimps, they are still relatively cheaper. After peeling off the skin, you can dip these little lobsters in a mix of soy and chilli sauce. This Si Chuan delight can be enjoyed with a can of beer or an icy cold beer for additional pleasure.
For all foodies who crave spicy foods at midnight, this is a shout-out. Yi Ping Xiang now operates late and offers midnight Si Chuan Chuang Chuang Guo, or Si Chuan Hot Pot. They also offer BBQ.
Remember to take a break at Yi Ping Xiang between 3 and 5pm.
