Mr. Chen Shui-mu has been working with Sichuan cuisine for three to four decades, since his time as an apprentice. The fact that all his fellow chefs also have at least 20 to 30 years of experience means that if you're looking for authentic Sichuan cooking in Taichung Jinchuan is the place to go.
"Cooking requires diligence. Other than using great ingredients, it is also important to keep learning," said Chen, who insists on preserving Sichuanese cuisine traditions in his cooking but keeps his mind open to creative ideas.
In fact, when diners bring their eating experiences from other restaurants, Chen often integrates their suggestions into creating new and innovative dishes. This restaurant's success can be attributed to its hard work and detailed considerations.
