New Szechuan may be a dive and certainly isn’t “new” but one would definitely consider it a “hidden gem”!

With only a handful of tables and 2 servers at most, this place is modestly “decorated”.

Table clothes are plastic layered on the table so they can just rip it off for the next customer. I find this quite funny actually.

Everything is modestly priced with a variety of popular traditional dishes.

Spicy Free Range Chicken 口水雞

New Szechuan Gourmet  0010

Unlike Golden Szechuan (click) this dish is finely shredded chicken dry tossed in diced chilli, chilli oil, cilantro and peanuts. Medium heat is quite spicy. But I love spice!

Spicy Sliced Cattle Stomach & Beef 夫妻肺片

Thinly sliced tripe and marinated beef slices tossed in cilantro and chilli. Tripe texture is chewy with and delicious as it soaks in the all the spices and flavouring.

Spicy boiled beef 水煮牛肉

New Szechuan Gourmet  0007

An alternate version of spicy boiled fish 水煮魚 where it is swimming in a sea of red chilli oil.

New Szechuan Gourmet  0008

Served in a mini pot with a flame underneath to keep cooking to increase the intensity of the flavour. Be sure to give it a try if you love spicy food or like to challenge yourself.

Spicy Dry Chicken Szechuan Style 辣仔雞

Please order this in at least a medium heat to benefit from this dish.

Diced chicken pieces deep fried and tossed in chilli pepper, garlic and spices.

Similar to dry ribs, this is a dry dish. Be careful when eating, there are small bones attached.

Stir Fried Bitter Melon 苦瓜

new szechuan gourmet 1004

Similar to the braised string beans 四川乾煸四季豆, this is made with bitter melon. Not everyone is a fan of bitter melon since they find it too bitter. But I can assure you if cooked properly it is quite delightful to eat! Plus there are plenty of benefits when consuming this.

Scientists find properties of bitter melon a powerful treatment for Type 2 diabetes as well it expels “heat” 熱氣 relieving fatigue and illuminating.

Deep Fried Rolls 銀絲捲

New Szechuan Gourmet  0011

You can order this either steamed or deep fried. I prefer deep fried since it’s a lil crunchy and I like the texture that offsets the soft and warm center.

New Szechuan Gourmet  0014

Served with condensed milk, you can dip the fried roll in. I like to strip away the center and stuff meat and savory items inside ex. Spicy Sliced Cattle Stomach & Beef 夫妻肺片 into the roll.

Make a mini slider! Dip into the sauce of ex. Spicy boiled beef 水煮牛肉 or other saucy dish you may have!

The remaining soft center you can drip into condensed milk or mix with savoury items.

So many ways to eat this! *wink*

Even tho there is absolutely zero ambiance in this dive. The food is quite comforting and delicious. It sure beats Lucky Gate in the Tri-City area and is more flavourful than Golden Szechuan in Richmond. Here I don’t feel ripped off and it’s nice and close to home.

See it’s so good we cleared everything on the table and drank all the chili oil. JK, we were in a hurry and packed it to go.

Next time I come here I want to try the Spicy Garlic Pork Belly – I hear it melts in your mouth.
