Absolutely tasty Sichuan hot pot at Jujube Tree, Chengdu, China
We were extremely pleased to have read about this restaurant online when we were doing our research on where to vegetarian food in Chengdu. Oh... the food, the service, the ambiance... there's nothing to complain about at this eatery. Jujube Tree is only a 5-10 minute taxi ride from Chun Xi Lu, making it a great dining option for visiting vegetarians. The highlight of the restaurant has to be the Sichuan Hot Pot (featured below)
Sichuan Hot Pot (天府麻辣锅） - RMＢ３２ filled with konnyaku jelly, generous amount of beansprouts, sliced 'ham' etc, the taste is unique and very delicious, and is something that I have never experienced. It was not very spicy but the spices used was very overwhelming but pleasant for the tongue. Definitely something that I would want to try again.
Steamed Dumplings （水饺）－ RMB 12 goes very well with the rice vinegar!
Wontons (鲜香云吞）－ＲＭＢ８ Wontons in a delicious vegetable stock. The celery and seaweed used greatly compliments the dish.
胜瓜虫草花 － ＲＭＢ２８ Lufa with a very crunchy and tasty sichuan mushroom.
The very famous Sichuan Dan Dan Mian （双色担担面） －ＲＭＢ６. It is as delicious as it looks, don't waste your stomach space for rice, order this instead!
This restaurant believes fruits consumed before meals promotes healthy digestion as they serve a complimentary fruit platter before you begin ordering. =)
Total cost: RMB 86
