La Zi Ji

The Spread

Garlicky Aubergine

I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves! A group of us celebrated Chinese New Year a little early yesterday with a big dinner at the Sichuan Restaurant in Acton. We shared a large Sichuan hotpot, chili chicken (la zi ji), vermicelli with pork, salted egg fried corn, mapo tofu, fried green beans with pork and preserved vegetables, and a garlicky spicy aubergine dish. Everything was so delicious and the little numbing Sichuan peppercorns distributed throughout the meal were quite entertaining.
