Chef’s Special Fish Fillet

For heat addicts, we recommend a visit to Fortune Well Sichuan Restaurant. Sichuan cuisine, known worldwide to be extremely spicy, lives up to its reputation at this Sunny Park eatery, which serves plenty of dishes that are fiery yet incredibly flavoursome. The chilli heat dial is turned up on their signature dish, the Chef’s Special Fish Fillet – a porcelain hot pot that’s filled with tender basa fillets that are marinated, boiled and served with a deeply flavoursome broth, hot oil, chilli and lots of Sichuan peppers. It’s perfect for Brisbanites seeking the vivid aromas and chilli flavours of Sichuan food.

Skewer Malatang

This chilli-laden hotpot filled with skewers is a must for all spice lovers. Head to Sichuan Gourmet, a restaurant that turns the humble skewer into a gastronomic affair and order their signature Malatang  bowl. For malatang newbies, the hugely popular Chinese street food is a choose-your-own-adventure hot pot and is perfect for those looking for a fully-customisable soup. Think a huge, piping-hot bowl of broth filled with a hearty mix of various food items and noodles, all bobbing in a broth flecked with chilli and Sichuan peppercorn. At Sichuan Gourmet you can choose from a vast variety of skewers (think meats, seafood, vegetables and more) and then after they are weighed they are passed on to the chef who artfully dunks them into the restaurant’s famous scalding thick pork broth that has been simmering with herbs and spices for 12 hours.

Fried Chicken with Sweet Chilli Sauce

Crunchy and crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, and flavoured with a spicy sweet chilli sauce – this is fried chicken at its very best! Sunnybank’s Korean Chicken creates delicious fried chicken that is dunked in red-hued sweet chilli glaze that is sure to get your mouth watering. Yes, yes – we know what you’re thinking. You can get fried chicken at your local takeaway – but we guarantee you haven’t tried fried chicken until you’ve visited this hotspot. The chicken packs an intense crispy crunch, which is thanks to the chefs frying the chicken pieces not once, but twice.

The vegetables include thickly chopped celery, onion, carrots, red and green capsicum, sweet potato, garlic cloves, goji berries, dates and topped with fresh coriander.
