First time at sichuan gourmet in framingham.

I know its a chowhound favorite and we are looking forward to it. What are some of your favorite things to order? We like spicy food. Looking for your favorite soups, appetizer and dinner suggestions. Thank you chowhound.

  1. They have a cold wood ear mushroom with chiles appetizer that could be one of my favorite things in the world. The dry fried chicken is also great.

    1. I love the hot and sour wonton soup and the chengdu spicy lamb!

      1. Apps:
        Dan dan noodles
        Wontons in sichuan chili sauce
        Hot & Sour Wonton Soup (not related to typical h&s soup)

        Mains:
        Dried chicken with chili sauce
        sichuan double cooked bacon
        beef, chicken or pork with napa and sichuan chili sauce
        meatballs with vegies sichuan style (not spicy)
        smokey hot chicken with cayenne.
        Cumin dry beef

        I would also make sure to indicate you like everything authentic/spicy, i have been there before when i thought they put less spice in the dishes.

          I also like the bamboo appetizer and the dry fish filets.

        2. They can make a superb ma pa tofu.

          1. My favorites (and two of the spicier dishes they serve):

            sliced beef tendon in chili sauce (fuqi feipian)
            dried chicken and chilies (small crispy cubes of chicken with fresh green chilies and dried red chilies)

            Still prefer the hole-in-the-wall Billerica location.

              Their tendon gets my vote for best in the area. It's treated with more care, better cut up and the sauce is delicious.
