New Sichuan Restaurant opens on Silas Creek Parkway.
The Twin City has made room for a second Sichuan restaurant specializing in the spicy Chinese cuisine. New Sichuan Restaurant opened in September in the old Biscuitville location on Silas Creek Parkway. Dishes include dry pot pork, ma po tofu, and lamb with Sichuan sauce. Uncommon meats are also featured, like tripe, ox tongue, and pork intestine. Altogether, about 30 dishes hail from the Sichuan region, whose spiciness comes from Sichuan peppercorns and dried chiles. Other standard Chinese dishes and vegetarian options are available. newsichuannc.com
