Chengdu Restaurants & Dining

Where and What to Eat in Chengdu

When traveling to China, the last thing that you need to worry about is finding a place to eat. You can find restaurants or food stalls at every corner.

Originally, Sichuan cuisine is rather spicy compared to other Chinese food styles, so be sure to tell the person who takes your order whether you prefer non-spicy or food with a little kick.

For homesick westerners, some restaurants in Chengdu also serve western dishes.
