Chengdu (Szechuan restaurant) near UC Berkeley

Joel | Jan 19, 201403:16 PM     12

Actually just across the street from UC, at Bancroft and Bowditch, previously a Vietnamese place (Le Petit Cheval).

The menu is familiar to me from years eating at China Village, Z&Y, and other places serving Szechuan food, However there are quite a few dishes I've never seen before -- "toothpick lamb", duck-blood stew, floured sliced pig's trotters…

The space is large and has an outdoor patio. It's in the YWCA building, so I doubt that they will ever have a liquor license.

It's just opened. I came for Sunday lunch and had the dan dan noodles, which were good, though a small serving ($5.95).

2600 Bancroft Way
(between Bowditch St & College Ave)
Berkeley, CA 94704
(510) 704-8018
