Date for Two: Pork with Kutchay Dumplings – P180, Home Style Beef Noodle Soup – P160, Spicy Dan Dan Noodles – P60
Overall: With the vast choices of hip restos in Poblacion, we still go back to the classic ones like LSQ Chinese Home Cuisine. It’s a small hole-in-the-wall restaurant beside the Great Western Hotel, a bit difficult to locate but trust us, it’s worth it. The dumplings are our fave ever since. Spicy Dan Dan Noodles are really, reallyy spicy. Even you have a high tolerance for spicy foods, it might not work for you. Best to ask to lessen the chili or, once served, just take out all the chilis you can spot. Beef Noodle is also good but next time, we might try the spicy version for additional flavor. The place is like an old house converted to a resto so please lower your expectations. And oh, they serve amazing XLBs too!
Value for money: Definitely worth it!

If you want authentic Szechuan home cuisine this is the place to go! We were the only Pinoys at the resto, everyone else was from the mainland. Felt like we were in China!
Everything is spicy!
Must try: 3 cup chicken, Pork and tofu, Taiwan sausage, tossed cucumber, & their century egg.
In this photo: poached fish with spicy veg! See all the sili?
Service is good.

Ordered the cumin beef to go, which I shared with my uncle and my cousin. They did say it was too hot, but good. I thought it was fine? What's wrong with me? I only felt the burn when I ate hot rice, which was necessary because the cumin beef was super tasty. The beef was flavorful and tender, unlike the stir fried dishes in that Hunan place near Rockwell.
I'm definitely coming back! Can't wait to try other dishes. Although the only downside is that I didn't notice any hotpots?
Thanks for the reco Alex O! Should've sent an actual recommendation so you get that looloo rating thing lol

Whooo! Perfect stars so far from 3 reviewers.
Didn't break their record because this place definitely lived up to their name. Their dishes are authentic szechuan cuisine. Even the chef is g.i. hihi
Ambiance was okay. I was able to watch my 'teleserye' while eating. Food servings were generous enough. Prices of the dishes were reasonable as well.
No bad experience from me and my family that's why I rate them with 5 stars. Will definitely recommend this to other people especially those who like spicy food.
P.S. You might be wondering why my picture contains no chili or whatsoever. Please be informed that out of the 8 dishes we ordered, this is the only one not spicy. Haha! You see I'm not really a fan of spicy food, but if it is real good food, then I can manage to eat a little. :)

If you love Sechuan cuisine, this is the real deal!
Tucked in a small alley in Poblacio, Makati, is a hole in the wall gem for authentic Sechuan cuisine. Eating here is like being transported to the Sechuan restuarants in Beijing. No frills and with simple interiors, LSQ is operated by a foreign Chinese national and mainly caters to foreign Chinese exchange students and businessmen, who have kept this place a secret from locals. But not for long, I guess.
It has an extensive menu of Sechuan dishes that in true authentic Sechuan style is extremely hhhhhot and is floating with red dried chillies. This is the closest you could get to Sechuan heaven in Manila!
Go for Poached Sliced Beef in Spicy Sauce (P450), Spicy Fried Chicken Cutlet (P195), Double Cooked Sliced Pork (P180), Fried Green Beans with Ground Pork (P150), Scrambled Egg with Chilli (P120), Stewed Spicy Goat's Meat in Casserole (P450), and a bowl of white rice, and iced cold Tsingtao beer! Ahhh.... solved!
It is located in Guerrero Street, a small alley on your right before you reach Aberdeen Court in Makati Ave. coming from Buendia.

If you like hot cuisine, well this is the place, just located side street of Makati Avenue. This restaurant serves northern Chinese food, mostly Beijing recipes, and it means very very HOT
The red things on the food is dry red chili peppers, yes the dishes are so hot you have to prepare dry towels to wipe your sweat and beg the waiter to serve you water fast fast fast ...
Among the bestseller foods are: Sichuan Dan Dan spicy noodle, Double cooked slice pork, stir fried cabbage beijing style, Beijing noodle with fried bean sauce, poached sliced beef in spicy sauce, home style tofu and ofcourse the Beijing pies.
They say their dumplings are one of the best, but i found it very ordinary, nothing spectacular. Their are other dishes that I would have to come back for, as there are really really many choices to choose for.
For people who like adventurous, unfamiliar and hot dishes, this is a place you should visit. BTW, the restaurant is tucked away on a side street behind Great Eastern Hotel on Makati Avenue, not a hole in the wall by any means but definitely a homely restaurant.
