New dish, Sichuan Style Mix Seafood at the Chilli House

Experience our Sichuan Style Mix Seafood, a delectable dish that combines squid, prawn, and cuttlefish, complemented by lemon slices and chilli sauce, offering a rich texture and unique flavours.

We carefully select squid, prawn, and cuttlefish as the main ingredients, skillfully cooked to maintain their tender texture and the delightful taste of seafood. The addition of lemon slices and chilli sauce brings a refreshing tanginess and a hint of spiciness to elevate this culinary creation.

Every bite of our Sichuan Style Mix Seafood is a true delight. The zesty lemon slices provide a refreshing acidity that harmonizes with the succulent seafood, tantalizing your taste buds with a burst of freshness. The chilli sauce adds a touch of heat, making it irresistibly mouthwatering.

Whether served as an appetizer or a main course, our Sichuan Style Mix Seafood offers a unique gastronomic experience. The combination of savoury seafood with the zing of lemon and the flavour kick of chilli sauce delivers a satisfyingly spicy and flavorful indulgence.
