Spotting the "grand opening" banner on Da Sichuan on El Camino Real in the old Mr. Chau's location, the name sounded vaguely familiar but it took me a while to place it. The Chinese name for Su Gia Restaurant in Newark that closed a few years ago was Da Sichuan. Here's my post about it.
I stopped in tonight to see if it might be the same people, and yes, the same owner and chief cook. Real Sichuan food has come to Palo Alto! The owner showed he his menu cover with Su Gia printed on it.
I'd already had dinner so didn't eat here. The menu is online and like Su Gia, the authentic Sichuan dishes are mingled in with the usual suspects at take-out heavy places. If you look at the video on the homepage, the images of the Sichuan specialties flash by. Hope the local 'hounds will check it out.
