Chilli Fagara

Chilli Fagara, located in the heart of Soho, has been one of the city’s stalwarts for Sichuanese cuisine ever since it opened some 15 years ago, garnering culinary awards aplenty. We were there to try out its Spring Lamb Special Menu plus other seasonal dishes.
 
Tucked in a quiet enclave on Old Bailey Street, Chilli Fagara is known for serving both authentic and innovative Sichuanese dishes. Its consistent quality has earned the restaurant a loyal following. We were certainly looking forward to the occasion. Our meal started with an appetiser – Lotus Root Slices with Sichuan Sauce ($68), followed by Cumin Lamb Skewers ($178) – the meat pieces were tender and flavourful.
 
A dumpling dish, Little Lamb Dumplings ($98) was next. The dumpling is house-made and prepared from scratch – from the dumpling skin to the minced lamb, and the quality showed. The next dish was a classic water-boiled Sichuanese dish, but with a twist. The laboriously named dish, Our Spice-infused Broth Garnished with Floating Chillies, Potato Noodles, Bean Sprouts, Chinese Leeks and Cloves with Lamb Meatballs ($238) is the first time that we tried a lamb meatball. The meatballs were excellent – tender and tasty, with a slightly firm texture – count us impressed.
 
We had to have the restaurant’s signature dish, Homestyle Ma Po Tofu ($108), which is every bit as good as billed. Also excellent is the Honey Garlic Spareribs ($138) which nicely rounded off our satisfying meal.
 
We should mention that for Mother's Day, Chilli Fagara is offering a kid-friendly Warp-at-Home Chilli Dumpling Kit ($128), which is a perfect and fun-filled present for any mum. The dumpling kit includes fresh ingredients to make 10 dumplings filled with marinated minced pork. It also has wrapping and cooking instructions and its signature Ma sauce. The dumpling kits are available from 2 to 9 May.
 
Chilli Fagara can always be counted on to deliver a spicy, zesty and delicious Sichuanese meal. We highly recommend you give it a try.
