Sichuan Citizen is the Sichanese restaurant/cocktail bar/tea house expansion of the popular Citizen Cafe. After the original building on Donghu Lu was reclaimed, it moved to Ferguson Lane in mid 2018. The new location is brighter and roomier, and now it has a balcony. It's still red, "exotic," and they kept the palm fans. It continues to serve up a sizable Sichuanese menu split into "New Style," "Signature," and "Classic" dishes, with everything from simple "twice-cooked" stir fry and diced dishes, to steamed dishes, vegetarian fare, Sichuan-style noodles and soups. Kung pao chicken to spicy pigs heart, tongue, and tripe. Notably addition here is Bar Basil, taking up a corner of the establishment, and serving up excellent cocktails, including their signature Basil Drops, for 60rmb.
Expect a very "Haipai" Holiday party with yummy basil drinks, fabulous beats and raffle prizes including gym memberships at one of their premium partner gyms. RSVP required (details in the flyer). Free entry.
