Our go-to place in Soho for tasty Sichuan food, Chilli Fagara has been a Foodie favourite since it opened back in 2005. If you've never been, we recommend prepping those palates for a fiery ride and ordering their garlic-infused beef slices, pork and veggie dumplings and stir-fried green beans.
The restaurant has recently launched its own brand of spice mixes, so you can take their quintessential Sichuan flavours home with you. The first spice mix is their signature house blend chilli powder, which is a mix of four different roasted chillies, nuts and Sichuan peppercorns; so now you can add that addictive, numbing, spicy kick to any dish at home.
This recipe for spicy chicken wings is easy to whip up as a no-fuss mid-week meal. Serve it as a snack with beer or at dinner with rice or noodles.
