Sichuan Gourmet: Yummy Chinese Food in Billerica!

ErstwhileEditor | Mar 20, 200312:01 PM

Yum yum! I just raced out to have some lunch at Sichuan Gourmet, having read some kudos on What a great discovery! I don't know how this would compare to Sichuan Garden in Brookline, because I STILL haven't managed to get there, but for those of us who are closer to Billerica, this is just wonderful.

Since I was by myself, I only managed to sample:

Hot and Sour Soup--Well this was hot, but somehow I cannot find a sour version anywhere now, and this was no exception. The ingredients were the correct ones, although I couldn't tell if this was a meatless version or my portion just contained no meat.

Sichuan Style String Beans--I may have had more interesting versions, but this one was pretty high quality. Some interesting flavor that I couldn't quite identify, perhaps emanating from the crispy bits of I-don't-what. It wasn't the usual Sichuan pickled veggies, I don't think....

Sliced Roast Beef and Tendon with Chili Sauce--this cold dish was really yummy. Very unusual. Spicy, garlicky, very interesting flavor nuances. A little bit of tripe in there too. Happy me, I have leftovers.

I got there a bit after 11:30 for lunch, and seating was no problem. By shortly after 12, it was packed, so beware. BTW, most of the patrons were Chinese.

This gem is located at:

502 Boston Road (Rte 3A)
(It's immediately to the right of the mall where K-Mart is--assuming you are facing the mall.)

Phone: 978-670-7339 or 978-670-7348

Hours: Mon-Thurs 11:30-9:30; Fri & Sat 11:30-10:30; Sun & Hols 12-9:30.

The staff was super friendly, and they speak extremely good English, for whatever that's worth.

Unfortunately, I'm busy tonight or I'd drag my daughter out there.
