Why you should eat Eggplant with Garlic Sauce at ChiliSpot in U City now

Sze Chuan’s eggplant with garlic sauce is so good it’ll change your idea of what eggplant can be. One of the most common veggie dishes found on Sichuan menus, eggplant is also one of the most difficult to get right. This one is cooked impeccably in a beautiful blend of oil, dried red peppers and sizable, aromatic pieces of garlic. Soft to the palate, it still has heft and substance and even seems to elevate the white rice served with it.
