Chengdu Taste is a Szechuan staple in SoCal that our LA team loves. When we asked them about it, they told us things like, “pumped to hear you have a Chengdu Taste!” and “good news for Seattle, it’s incredible.” After a few bites of outstanding minced pork dan dan noodles, wontons in pepper sauce, garlicky cold shaved beef, and mapo tofu that tastes like a warm hug in edible form, we whole-heartedly understand why our California colleagues love this place so much. This isn’t the first time Seattle has inherited a new location of a Los Angeles spot, but Chengdu Taste is the first one to really get excited about.
