    For the tender tongued, there are a few Cantonese and Taiwanese recipes. Lots of vegetables too, including crunchy lotus and squishy loofah. Don't miss the spectacular succotash of corn and pine nuts. Read more

    The best Sichuan in NYC. You can't go wrong with spicy cold noodles, chongqing chicken, string beans. The best in class for every dish here. Totally worth the trip.

    This may be the most spice-intensive Sichuan food the city has. We love the fried potato in hot sauce & the pork meatballs in garlic sauce, but while you're out here, try the chicken in Sichuan sauce.

    Best sichuan food in NYC. Highlights include spicy cold noodles, scallion fried rice, mapo tofu, pork dumplings, and the chonqing chicken. Get it all.

    Getting to College Point is a trek, but it's worth it for the Sichuan food here. Pickled string beans with ground pork have a serious addictive funk.

    The best Sichuan in NYC. Get the whole fish w/ minced pork, spicy cold noodle, preserved egg, ox tongue & tripe, griddled mushroom & preserved pork, any of the soups & more.

    If you want a sure thing, go for crowd-pleasers like cumin lamb, spicy cold noodles, braised fish, and the ever-popular “crust of cooked rice with pork,” a Little Pepper signature.

    Excellent Sichuan worth the hike to College Point. Go with a group to order plenty; you want to make a trip worth your while.

    Fried Potato with Hot Sauce, Dumplings, Tofu and Scallion Fried Rice is BOMB! 💣 Definitely worth trying if you like Spicy! 🔥🔥🔥

    The scallion fried rice here is exceptional. You'll need it to accompany some of the spicier dishes, and you'll probably crave it every day after you've tried it.

    This used to be my favorite Sichuan in NYC and it's still a higher-ranked mid-tier spot, but the city now has a few higher end spots including the indomitable Guan Fu.

    If you like Sichuan food, look no further. The cold chicken in hot sauce is amazing. Everything is great actually.

    Braised sliced fish in spicy soup base at Little PepperTimid tongues should know from the instant this bowl reaches the table to steer clear—the broth itself is dyed a brilliant red with chili oil...

    When I get the spicy food itch, this is the first place I think of. Try the pork belly in hot oil. You'll end up pouring the sauce over your rice.

    Known as a hot spot for sizzling Sichuan dishes, be sure to check out surf clams tossed in wasabi dressing.

    The hot dumplings were outstanding. Super inexpensive, but bring cash. That's all they take.
