In the video we ate deep fried string beans (干煸四季豆), Kung Pao chicken (宫保鸡丁), twice cooked pork slices (回锅肉), and Szechuan hotpot (四川火锅) . My favorite was the hotpot. It had a spicy-sour taste that was so good after a long day without eating. The deep fried string beans were alright. Kung Pao chicken is what the Chinese always think foreigners will love and sure enough, as foreigners,we did. As for the twice cooked pork slices, you can't go wrong ordering that.

I made a short video on some of the foods I have come across in Sichuan province. Sichuanese food otherwise known as Szechuan food is known for being very flavorful and spicy. Actually the famous Kung Pao Chicken is a Szechuan food which is featured in the short video I made. The foods in the video were eaten when we were in Chengdu, the provincial capital of Sichuan province. In China there are basically two types of fast food, western and Chinese. If it is Chinese fast food there is a 90% chance that it will be related to Szechuan food. Take a look at the video and let me know what you think.
