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 craftsmanship, using subtleties to showcase the delicacies of the 24 flavors quintessentially represented in Sichuan cuisine, 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 six hours in Yang's secret housemade chili oil recipe 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 chili oil.
  • The hand-pulled dan dan noodles with minced pork is an exceptional example of Yang's interpretation of a classic Sichuan dish. Expect thick, springy noodles in a bath of rich, nutty, spicy sauce and the sweet aroma of Sichuan peppercorns.
