  • About

“Sizzling rice” is the term describing the miniature explosion that occurs when crisp hot rice collides with thick soup. The magic of having the rice sizzle as one pours the hot soup over it always delights diners. I enjoyed this popular Sichuan version of the well-known rice dish at the Guihu restaurant in Xindu. Although it is a Sichuan recipe, this dish is not spicy. It is, however, so thick and satisfying, it may well become a meal in itself. You may make your own crisp rice at home
