Sichuan Gourmet Burlington

The latest addition to the growing Laosichuan empire, Sichuan Gourmet in Burlington is now open in the formerly Mr. Chans location.

Nice highly visible sign and of course plenty of parking.

They took out the other divider otherwise, it looks pretty much the same. One of the owners, Mr. Li Zhong is here to oversee the opening. I did recognize the waitress all the way in the back from, I think, their Billerica location

Only one family table.

Their H&S soup is usually very good but this one was excellent with a very rich flavor in addition to being both hot and sour. I suspect that their head chef, Mr. Liu Lijun, is working in the kitchen. The pickled veggies were also very very tasty even if it was a lot of carrots but in this case, I didn't mind them.

One of my favorite dishes from the lunch menu, Sichuan Double Cooked Bacon ($8.50) with pork belly, of course. The only other restaurant that has this on the lunch menu, Beijing in Lexington, is hit and miss and you have better that a 50% chance of getting dry and overcooked pork. Here the pork was, naturally, perfectly cooked with lightly charred hot peppers and some thinly sliced and crispy leeks. This was so perfectly prepared that it just reinforces my suspicion that the head chef is in the kitchen.

This is how it looked at 12:15, the place was packed and at 12:25 there was a line waiting for tables. I'm soo happy to have them here. They only serve their lunch specials Mon-Thurs but you can do takeout from the lunch menu on Fridays.
