Restaurants at a Glance


Sichuan cuisine is addictive. If you live in London, you might like to know that Barshu is open every, and throughout, the day. The chef and the rest of the kitchen all hail from Sichuan, the home of China’s most assertive cuisine. The best writer on Chinese cuisine in the English language, Fuchsia Dunlop, was a consultant to Barshu. Dunlop was the first Westerner to train as a chef in Chengdu in the late 1990s. She possesses a sensitivity to the nuances and layers of Chinese cuisine rarely encountered.
