Authentic Sichuan in Pgh N. Hills
Has anyone here ever been? Who the heck knew? China Star in McIntyre Square on McKnight Rd of all places serves authentic Sichuan:
I haven't tried it yet either, but I think I might have to!
They've been open for quite a while now. We used to eat there all the time. In fact, after they opened, there was no English version of their Sichuan menu, so a Chinese work friend and I translated it for them, paving the way for all of us non-Chinese to enjoy the real deal. They've since updated and improved the menu. Things have changed around a little bit there, and I don't think the food is quite as well done as when they first opened, but it's still the only real Sichuan game in town, as far as I know. If you need a fix, it's the place.
I haven't been out there in a couple months, so if you're familiar with real Sichuan cooking, please report back on how they're doing...
They've been open for years now, doing basically the same thing, I'm surprised it's taken this long for anyone in the press to really notice.
