Lonely Planet review
Mouth-wateringly good, high-quality Sichuanese food, and some pan-Asian dishes too, at the Jiěfàngbēi branch of one of Chóngqìng’s best-value high-end restaurants. Everything is tasty, but we loved the jiāowáng chánzuǐ tù (椒王馋嘴兔; rabbit and peppers; ¥38) and the shānhú xiā (珊瑚虾; coral shrimp; ¥36). For dessert, don’t miss the mìzhì chāshāo sū (秘制叉烧酥; secret recipe meat-filled pastries; ¥3 each). Enter through a lift accessed from Bayi Lu (八一路). Photo menu.
