Of the many Sichuan restaurants in Shanghai, there’s of course the famed South Beauty and Pinchuan Sichuan – both of which caters to a slightly expat / foreigner market, given the decor and of course, the higher-than-average prices.
South Beauty remains at the top of my list, but there’s this other slightly more local alternative that I enjoy equally as much, and that is Yuxin Sichuan Dish. There are currently 2 branches in Shanghai and their spicy dishes are numbingly-good; not quite as presentable as South Beauty, but definitely as flavorful (as with all Sichuan dishes) and a lot more spicy.
Take a look at all of my favorite dishes:
All the dishes you see here + large bottle of Tsingtao and plum juice = RMB 205. Worth going to? Absolutely.
