Guo Jiang (锅匠) @ Mosque Street - The Best Of Both Worlds With Half-Half Pot


Located along Mosque Street is Guo Jiang (锅匠), a Szechuan restaurant located at the heart of Chinatown. The restaurant seemed quite popular because even when we had made a reservation, we still had to wait for a while for our table as the restaurant was full.


We decided to go for the half-half pot, which consists of Chicken Stew in Signature Mala Sauce with Baby Yam and Bamboo Shoots (烟笋芋儿鸡) and Fresh Fish Fillet in Sichuan Pickled Mustard (老坛子酸菜鱼).


I enjoyed the stewed chicken in mala sauce and fish fillet in Sichuan pickled mustard. The stewed chicken was tender with the soft yam soaking up the fragrant mala sauce. As for the fish fillet, they are fresh and generous, swimming in the pungent Sichuan pickled mustard broth.


Not to forget to have the chicken and fish with the special house sauce.

Fresh Cucumber Salad

I would recommend having the Fresh Cucumber Salad (凉拌黄瓜) to freshen up the palate. It is refreshing and crunch but also a tad spicy.

Pig Ear

Though the soft bone of the Pig Ear (猪耳朵) gives a delightful and crunchy bite, the gaminess is too strong for my liking.


Overall, I enjoyed the meal at Guo Jiang. If it is the first time visiting the place, I recommend the half-half pot, where you get to try the best of both worlds. Besides that, the portion is also quite generous.
