Wher To Eat and Sleep in Chengdu

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

Where to Stay

Dorsett Grand Chengdu located at a very strategic location.

  • It is right in front of (upcoming) MRT station.
  • 7-11 and street food is 5 minutes walking distance away.
  • 5 minutes driving distance away from the shopping street.
  • Away from traffic jam.

Comfortable and Customer Service are at its best. Can refer to my previous posts. 😀

What to eat in Chengdu.

Damiao Hot Pot Restaurant

Chengdu is capital of Sichuan. Sichuan is famous for their spicy and numbing food. Damiao is one of the famous restaurants in Chengdu serving Sichuan hot pot.

We were afraid that the Spicy soup will be too much for us to handle, so we order another herbal soup based as a backup plan. And thank God, that we did, we get to switch between the two when our tongue got too numb.

Do remember to book before hand ya.

Long Chao Shou Restaurant

Here’s the place to go if you want to taste all Chengdu’s signature dishes in one go.

Ask for a full package, and you will be served with over 20 dishes.

Don’t worry, the dishes are in bite size, so you will get sample everything, nevertheless, by the time we at our 20 dish, we were at our limit.

Hongqiangjiyi Restaurant

This is an interesting place as they serve creative Chengdu cuisine.

And look at their interior design, its like a living room.

It’s all Chengdu Cuisine but with a little twist, either a different way of preparation or a replacement of ingredients.

Oh oh, there’s this salad vegetable that has crystallized water drops on it, do remember to order that if you’re in Chengdu. It’s good. XD Very crispy and refreshing.

One of the most interesting fact of Chengdu food is that, they eat animals that hops…

and they tasted like chicken. hahaha

Fu Yue Xuan Chinese Restaurant @ Dorsett Grand Chengdu

Before this, I mentioned that I had my best Dan Dan Mee in Dorsett Grand Chengdu. The hotel is also a great place to have your dinner as well. The Fu Yue Xuan Restaurant in Dorsett serves Chinese Western Fusion dishes.

It’s a great place to bring your clients or special one, as the dishes are an artwork on its own. We had almost 30 dishes that night, everything I had was super awesome.

I think the highlight of the night for me is this dish, Wagyu Beef. It was my first time having Wagyu beef.

Hahaha must try ma to understand why everyone is so crazy about all these Wagyu and Kobe beefs.

Many knows that I don’t take beef. I used to be allergy to it and would diarrhea if I had them but now I just not used to the beefy taste.

But, Wagyu is so amazing, it doesn’t has the beefy weird taste but the good and sweet aroma of it. I took a couple of it that night. I was the first time that I had so much beef on my own will. 


Taoping Qiang Village

If you are in Taoping, don’t forget to try Qiang Tribe food.

They seldom takes fresh meat. What they do is they cut the meat into pieces and dry it on a beam. Then, smoke the meat to make its color yellow. It is said that the longer the meat was kept, the more delicious it becomes. When serving, they cut the meat into small pieces and either fry or steam it with different kinds of vegetables. It is greasy but quite tasty.

Another is Yak Meat. Yak is a type of cow, a hairy furry cow. XD It’s like beef but much more tinder than normal beef and also doesn’t has the beef taste. It’s like pork but not pork. hahahah

Grandma MaPo Tofu Restaurant

Last meal of the trip. This restaurant is located just right opposite of Dorsett Grand Hotel. Super near. They serve good Sichuan dishes with their signature MaPo Tofu.

This is good, I think its Peppery Rabbit Meat.

We had another 10 over dishes that night and more than half of them looks like this:

It’s so delicious but are they trying to kill me?

or are they trying to save my flight ticket by sending me home this way. hahaha.

Best KL Hotel Ever because of an Orange Cat

What’s best about the hotel is their customer service!

Hahaha okay I exaggerate a bit but honestly the customer service was very welcoming.

Totally not because they got me a miao cake. lol *koff koff*

Seriously, a cat-cake for me! How can it not be the best hotel. hahahaha


Hahaha okay, joke aside. It wasn’t my first stay with Dorsett. Previously I have been staying with them in Chengdu and it was an awesome experience. (Read the posts here 1, 2, 3).

I just love how Dorsett Hotel rooms are designed.

Elegant and spacious.

And the color scheme makes the space very comfortable to be in. I felt totally relaxed whenever I’m back in the room. I think one day I shall have my bedroom designed this style. XD

What makes Dorsett Hotel greater is their customer service. Dorsett staffs always seems welcoming and would always check both with your well being in the hotel and the day/trip you just had and would suggest something that would make it better. Last time in Chengdu, they brought us food in the midnight and recommended an awesome body massage the next day.

This time, they found out I was going to my book sign on that trip and decided to prepare a cake before hand.

It really came in as a surprise. I was really overwhelmed by it.  Thank youuuu so much for the cake and <3,  Dorsett KL I wasn’t expecting that at all.

If you going to visit KL, just stay Dorsett KL, no need think. hahaha

Now, they are having a big renovation to the restaurant and lobby right now, so expecting something greater coming in 2nd Quarter of 2016. :)

At first, I have no idea what to do with the cake…

Luckily, I had a book signing the next day and decided to treat everyone there.

Thank you again for the awesome hospitality and also cake, everyone loves it.


Oh, for those in Kuching, I will be having my book signing this Saturday 21 November at MPH Spring and Saturday 5 December in Popular Fair Cityone. Feel free to drop by okay!
