If you are not salivating after looking at the photos, there is something seriously wrong with your taste buds. After dining there twice for lunch, Lilly, the owner of Sichuan Impressions now has been ordering our delicious meals for us.
Sichuan typically can been on the spicy side but the taste is so unique and delicious. We tried the cold noodle dish which was over the top. The boils are the soups and my favorite is the Chili Sauce boil. As I said, the fish fillets melt in your mouth and the flavors come together perfectly. I would not go there without ordering one of the boils.
We sampled twice cooked pork, ribs, and lamb and finished off with a delicious cooling jelly dessert with fresh watermelon and mint, which is their signature dish, a gift from Lilly.
In proper Sichuan fashion, many dishes here will leave your mouth guessing and a little fiery, but there are plenty of others that are more subtle. All these dishes come from the aromatic side of China’s famously fiery region.
The Alhambra based restaurant has graced us with their presence in Tustin. You might have to wait a bit but it is well worth it. I suggest you go with a group, meet Lilly and have her order for you.
Truly a cultural and different experience.
