The fiery appeal of Sichuan cooking may possibly suit the tastes of Albuquerque residents, especially in the cool months of winter. In fact, the city already has direct flights to Chengdu, the capital of China’s Sichuan province which was declared a City of Gastronomy by the United Nations Economic, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). However, why go far out west, when you can relish some of Sichuan cooking’s finest offerings through a great place of Chinese food in Albuquerque like Lin’s Grand Buffet?

A casual look at your preferred Chinese buffet place’s menu will reveal various products of Sichuan cuisine. Kung pao is available in either chicken, beef, or shrimp, but you can kick off the feast with a serving of Hot and Sour Soup. Take note that the presence of bean paste and cornstarch gives Sichuan dishes an oily red broth. In addition, some experts suggest washing the spices down with beer, tea – or a serving of rice.
