Sichuan in Chicago-will it blow me away?

lyn | Jan 21, 2008 06:36 PM

I am popping in town for a quick visit and only have a couple meals available and I want them to be meals I cannot have at home (perhaps Italian Beef, deep dish pizza, decent home style Greek and Sichuan!) As a point of reference I am a big Grand Sichuan ( in NY) fan, but have been kind of disappointed in my travels when places do not measure up since I take the effort to seek Sichuan out. I like really hot and tingly and Sichuan peppercorns are essential. What are Sichuan food fans thoughts on Laoszechuan in China Town? If it is not amazing, then I probably would need to go another trip. I am looking for that euphoric feeling you can sometimes get from Sichuan (not just heat) I am staying in the Miracle Mile area and taking public transportation so I really don't want to travel much given time limitations. The lunch menu does not look as good as dinner, but I wonder if I could order off the dinner menu at lunchtime...
