Don’t worry, there’s nothing to fret about at this authentic Chinese restaurant – if you don’t like spice, you’ll be alright. Of course, being a restaurant that sticks to traditional Sichuan cuisine closer than almost any in Sydney, Chilli Drama Restaurant on Burwood Road is certainly a place to go if you want a spice hit, pumping out many traditional dishes based on the famous Sichuan red chilli pepper, including the theatrically named pockmarked woman’s bean curd (mapo doufu in Chinese): cubed bean curd cooked over a low flame in a sauce of ground beef, chilli and pepper.. However, Chilli Drama delves much further into Sichuan cuisine than most Chinese eateries, and if you want something truly authentic and unfamiliar you should go straight for the not spicy but richly flavoursome tea-smoked duck. Chilli Drama Restaurant is a rare breed in Burwood – or Sydney in general – for its unwavering adherence to Sichuan traditions. If you want the real deal, book here now.
