That glow-in-the-dark belt buckle and rhinestone-fringed denim jacket sure are bold choices for a Saturday night in Squirrel Hill, but they’re still not as bold as the flavors and recipes found at Sichuan Gourmet. Formerly known as Chinastar, this restaurant has dedicated itself to giving Pittsburgh a taste of the Sichuan Province. If you dare, stop in soon to receive $25 worth of authentic Chinese dining for only $12.50.
Ease into your meal with fun appetizers, like Honey Pork Ribs, Cheese Rangoon or Cold Sesame Noodles, served with a sesame-and-peanut butter sauce. Others prefer the savory Tomato Egg Soup, House Special Wonton or Seafood Hot & Sour Soup. Many of your favorites are here, including Pineapple Fried Rice, Sizzling Chicken, Moo Goo Gai Pan, Pepper Steak, Hunan Beef, Triple Flavor Shrimp, Black Pepper Fish, Sichuan Lamb, Sweet and Sour Pork, General Tso’s Tofu and more! Try the house specialties, like Mu Shu Pork, Lemon Chicken, Peking Duck or Black Mushroom Beef, or enjoy an authentic hot pot. Lunch specials are served from 11am through 3pm Monday through Friday.
