Sichuan Provincial Government Office Restaurant

5 Gongyuan Toutiao , Jianguomennei Dajie
Beijing , China
86-10-6512-2277

“Fine cuisine” is not usually the first thing that pops to mind when talking about the government. In this case though, the Sichuan provincial office hosts a restaurant, highlighting the fiery spice of Sichuan fare. Each province is represented by an official restaurant in Beijing. In this one, known as “Chuan Ban,” the nondescript interior brings all the focus to the food. Dan dan mein noodles are a popular starter, followed by Sichuan chicken and eggplant in hot oil with garlic. Be prepared to leave with a full stomach and a tingling mouth.
