    Did your Sichuan food contain hua-jiao (Sichuan peppercorn)? If not, then try again, you haven’t had the real thing yet! Its flavor imparts a tingly sensation unlike anything else. Prepared together with chili pepper, it creates the flavor combo of “ma-la”.

      It did. We were told they were prickly bush berries or something. The dish has basically french fries with the peppercorns, hot chilis, and a host of other yummy and very flavorful spices. I liked the peppercorns but then, at some point, go t abite that was too heavy and my tongue got so numb that I felt like I might choke on it. After that I mostly shook them off.
