My previous experiences with Chinese food were not the most successful, but upon taking an invitation from a friend to go and eat at Peking Sichuan, my opinion drastically changed. The restaurant is located pretty close to the central Oslo area, in a not too fancy building, but it has a nicely split interior, so that you can get your privacy (unless the place is extremely crowded).
All the staff was Chinese and the owner of the place stopped by our table and had a little chat with us. That already makes the stay way more enjoyable while waiting for the food. The main menu is split in Sichuan specialties and other main dishes and since everything is brought on separate plates, it’s very easy to split with your companions and so you get to try everything. And you can’t decide if the duck, the fasan, the vegetables or just the rice soaked in sauce is more tasty. I really loved the simple traditional jasmine tea on the side as well.
Now I know that Chinese food is actually tasty and flavored and I’m definitely going back and trying other specialties in their menu. Plus, they offer take away food, so one can also just enjoy it at home if dining at the restaurant is not an option for the occasion.
