    Although Chengdu is known for its own unique and deliciously spicy Sichuanese flavors, the city has much more to offer than just its signature Chinese dishes. This international city boasts a global palate that includes Japanese and Korean favorites like sushi, tempura, BBQ and bibimbap. You don't have to cross an ocean to mix up your normal culinary routine; just go for a meal at one of these great East Asian eateries!

    1) Pankoo Busan Restaurant
    Located in Chicony Plaza, the Pankoo Busan (PANKOO釜山料理) is a hugely popular restaurant that features cuisine from Busan, South Korea. The restaurant's beef dishes are particularly delicious; fresh and dripping with just the right amount of fat and oil, but never too greasy. As per usual, customers can cook the Korean BBQ themselves, but the helpful waiters will step in if necessary. The pumpkin congee is a local favorite as well, mainly because it is a nice balance to the hot and savory meat dishes. The restaurant is often crowded during the weekends, so it's best to go during the week to avoid the rush. Recommended dishes: fatty beef slices (肥牛), pork belly (五花肉), pumpkin congee (南瓜粥), beef stone bibimbap (牛肉石锅拌饭), veal (小牛肉), shitake mushrooms (香菇), fried rice cakes (炒年糕), miso soup (大酱汤), tuna stone bibimbap (金枪鱼石锅拌饭), clam and tofu soup (蛤蜊豆腐汤) and seafood pancakes (海鲜饼).

    2) Hexing

    Hexing (和幸) is a simply furnished, homey Japanese joint with relatively cheap eats. The menu features a large selection of tempura and hot pot, but not much in the way of sushi.

Recommended dishes: pork rib tempura (炸猪排), cabbage (卷心菜), steamed egg (蒸蛋), miso soup (味增汤), shrimp tempura (炸虾), pork rib hot pot (猪排火锅), pumpkin tempura (炸南瓜) and pickled cabbage (泡菜).

The restaurant is self-service and the portions are small but the food is very high quality. The thick salmon sashimi is particularly good and the salmon roe is always fresh.
