It’s been about 18 months since we visited Red Chilli York– another one of our favourite restaurants. This authentic Chinese restaurant is always full of Chinese people – always a good sign that it’s not just going to be chicken chow mien with sweet and sour balls!
The food, as always, was delicious.
My one regret is getting the sliced duck starter. It was a cold dish and basically just sliced duck. It was a bit like eating slices of ham or turkey straight from the fridge. I think I’ve fallen for this trick before though! The best starter was the salt and peppered squid. It was so well seasoned!
I got the sizzling beef fillet in pepper sauce for my main. I would get this again 100%. It was delicious. My boyfriend got his favourite hot and spicy pork belly – it was a bit fatty though!
I kind of wanted to try the frog’s legs – there were many dishes with it in, but I bottled it! There are so many new things to try, like pig intestines, chicken feet, tongue, we even found a funny typo where the menu said ‘brown crap’ instead of ‘brown crab’… at least I hope it was a typo!
They also do Leffe on tap. So that’s a win for me!
