If you have a craving for almost painfully piquant dishes, try Wan Chai. Named after the district in northern Hong Kong, this joint has an extremely spicy mussel dish waiting for you. Foodies with a love for fiery cuisines do not want to miss out on this. Wan Chai developed this mussels with black beans and chili dish that’s seasoned with Sichuan peppers, Cheongyang red peppers and pepperoncino rosso. They stir fry the mussels and seasonings at a very high temperature and serve it with a sticky rice porridge that helps to ease the stomach pain that results from this insanely hot dish. Their black-red seasoning has a strong taste that almost covers the natural taste of the mussels.
