Many travelers know Sichuan cuisine for its "hot and spicy" flavors or a few of its most famous dishes; it is legendary in China for its sophistication and diversity. The regional cuisine boasts 5,000 different dishes. Sichuan cuisine has enjoyed a worldwide reputation. However, most people immediately think of Sichuan food soon after it is mentioned as a hot or spicy food. You may wonder why the red pepper is so popular. Here is a common explanation. Sichuan has a humid climate that encourages people to eat strongly spiced foods. The red pepper may help reduce internal dampness. So I will try this food because it looks good plus it will be appropriate to the climate when I get the chance to visit Chengdu but first I have to save enough money so that I wont have to use my quick payday loans.
