Dine Out: Xiao La Jiao Sichuan Cuisine

Something that I can't live without in my food diary is chilli!
Yes, it means everything spicy is my cup of tea.


And it's so thoughtful of my babe, Mag from Modgam.com taking me for Xiao La Jiao Sichuan Cuisine to indulge the extra craving of spicy food during my early pregnancy stage.
And it's totally satisfy every single craving buds on me.
 - Thanks a lot babe -

Serving the authentic and yet acceptable for Singaporean taste of spiciness, 
Xiao La Jiao is the place to dine out with your family and friends. A different kind of food to try out for the weekend dine out ritual. Especially if you love spicy food like me. 
This is perfect.

And oh, one thing you must not forget to order when you get there, is the sour plum drink and the honey lemon. I know, you might think you already know the taste of the two, but hey..I don't think so, until you tried this one. 

My favourite is the sour plum drink.
It has the sweet, sour and salty taste in it.

We started with the appetisers:

Husband & Wife Beef Offal with Spicy Sauce
I feel like having a party on my mouth when I eat this, and it is actually the intention of Sichuan food to open up our taste buds before proceeding to the next menu.
Served cold, with a tangy and spicy taste.

Pig’s Ear Slices with Spicy Sauce
For the non spicy lover, this might be the most suitable appetiser for you.
Crunchy texture, mild taste - with a spicy sauce as an option -
Served Cold: crunchy and mild taste.

Sichuan Wontons with Spicy Sauce
 Moist dumpling in a spicy soup with a little vinegar taste in it.

Camphor & Tea Smoked Duck
Not a typical smoked duck. 
You will found this dishes is different from a normal duck dish in a chinese restaurant where the crispy skin is the main focus of the dish. For this Camphor & Tea smoked duck, they waste none of the duck meat, and actually the meat itself is the part that I love the most of this dish. It's fragrantly smokey and tender.
A MUST TRY dish.

Rainbow Dumplings
Generous filling! 
No matter what are the taste you tried, you will find a full chunk of filling inside it.

Sichuan Guo Tie
Super yummy! 
I can take the whole plate down by myself :) 
No kidding.

I love the combination of the pan fried in the outside, and an unexpected broth inside it.

 Pork Strips in Sweet Bean Sauce
Although I prefer a spicy food, I think having a sweeter and milder dish among the fiery one can be very interesting. Especially, if it something as tender, sweet saltish and moist pork strip like this.

Sichuan Fish Slices with Pickled Greens
I LOVE THIS! I am a fans of fish fillet, and anything with fish fillet, I will open my mouth in a big AAAA.
Too bad I can't show the big AAAA on my mouth when I am enjoying this sourish fish soup from Xiao La Jiao. But I do ignore everybody while enjoying this soup, it's simply tasty and far from the fishy smell, if you are worried about it.

 Cabbage with Rich Broth
Simple dish with a vegetable sweet kind of broth.
I'm ok with it, but not really a fan for this one.

But, indeed I am a big fan of 
 Sichuan Ma Po Tofu
Feed me this and I will be the happiest girl during lunch/dinner time!

Add on to this!

..and I am the happiest girl with spoonful Ma Po Tofu on white steam rice. Perfect.

Ge Le Shan ‘La Zi’ Chicken
Super delicious, addictive and makes you numb.
try it yourself and you will know what I mean.

Sichuan Waxed Pork Soup
Not my kind of soup, but I quite like the clear feeling after all the spicefull food.

Dessert time!

 Sichuan Pumpkin Pancake
If you are a fans of sesame, this might be your choice.
Part from the sweetness of the pumpkin inside, you will taste a rich sesame on the skin.

Mixed Sugar Guo Kui
I will definitely come back for this!
Love the sweetness and the texture.

And of course, we have to close the night with a group shots, right?
