Cheng Du Xiao Chi on No. 3 Road, Richmond

Ben and I had just watched an episode of Antony Bourdain Parts Unknown to Chengdu. It inspired us to go for Sichuan food for dinner.

Our initial plan was to go to Szechuan Delicious Restaurant across Richmond Center but it was closed that day. So, Ben decided to try Cheng Du Xiao Chi which is located in a small strip mall next Aberdeen Square (just before Aberdeen Square if you travel south to north on No.3 Road).

We wanted to check out the new restaurant which took over Hollywood Steak House but the parking lot was full. So, we went over to Alexandra Road as plan B. We turned in to the parking lot where Old Buddies Seafood Restaurant is and the only parking spot left was reserved to Chengdu Spicy Restaurant. Chengdu Spicy Restaurant’s predecessor was Cheung’s Chiu Chow Restaurant.
