Five Foot Road

Stylish Sichuan cuisine

Channeling the elegance of 1940s Chengdu — an era when high society indulged in lavish soirees and banquet-style dinners in glamorous urban mansions — Five Foot Road delivers elegant, multi-sensory dining that will expand your understanding of Sichuan cuisine.

Located within MGM COTAI, the restaurant emphasizes culture and context, with countless historical references across the interior design, artwork and recipes. Even the name, Five Foot Road, nods to the width of merchant carts that once traversed the Silk Road.

Leading the kitchen is Yang Dengquan, a Chengdu-born chef with more than 35 years of experience. Chef Yang’s menu features a range of modern, classic and forgotten dishes that showcase the cuisine’s delicate techniques and delicious aroma. Meanwhile, a bounty of fragrant peppercorns, indigenous herbs and wild mushrooms sourced from southwestern China add a layer of freshness and seasonality to the meal.

The Food

  • When thinking about Sichuan food, characteristics like “fiery” and “hot” often come to mind. But Yang strives to explore the cuisine’s more nuanced, subtle side with delicacies such as stewed minced chicken bouillon.
  • One of the Cotai restaurant’s most delicate dishes, poached Chinese cabbage, hails from the Qing Dynasty. Known for its complex chicken broth, the light yet satisfying soup was once a staple at elaborate banquets and upscale dinner parties in Chengdu.
  • As for appetizers, the chilled Sichuan-style abalone is a signature. This dish is a labor of love — it’s been marinated for four-plus hours in chilli oil and more than 30 types of Sichuan herbs.
  • Another favorite is Yang’s Sichuan carpaccio, which features crispy mullet instead of traditional beef in a punchy sauce made from sugar, vinegar and chilli oil.
  • If you’re craving an umami bomb, the hand-pulled dan dan noodles with minced pork is a crowd-pleaser. Expect thick, springy noodles in a bath of rich, nutty, spicy sauce and the sweet aroma of Sichuan peppercorns.
