Spicy, spicy, spicy—don’t expect anything else from Ba Shu Feng, which is famous for serving authentic, home-style Sichuan cuisine. The chain, first opened in 1998, now has six restaurants all over Shenzhen, and we visited its Luohu branch.
Saliva chicken (L) and Toufu with crab spawn soup
This spacious venue is decorated like a small Sichuan village. We sat down under a big artificial tree and ordered the classic noodles with a sauce of pork bits and Zhong dumplings—both came in small portions, were incredibly cheap and proved perfect for warming up the stomach. The must-try saliva chicken was prepared with bamboo shoots and aromatic chili oil, while the steamed fish (a very big one) was covered with hot, rich sauce and tasted fresh and tender inside. Feeling the heat in our mouths, we took a break by having the non-pungent Chinese mushroom and green beans and a jar of sour plum syrup, which is known as the best company for piquant food.
The ambience is homey and casual, and you know how seriously Ba Shu Feng takes the word “authentic” when you hear nice staff members talk to you in a Sichuan accent.
