    Spicy Empire is a Chinese restaurant that recently opened in the former location of Shanghai East. They focus on Sichuan Chinese cuisine with an emphasis on spicy dishes.

    Their sister restaurant is The Pot Sticker in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

    Summary – Extremely spicy Sichuan Chinese food for those who dare.
    Insider Tip – Order crab the day before you dine. Beer, Rice, and milk are necessities. Leave the kids at home.

    Cuisine – Sichuan Chinese cuisine
    Location – San Mateo
    Opened – January 2011

    Service – Typical Chinese marginal service is present at Spicy Empire. Dishes were so hot that we could barely taste ingredients. We ate dinner with 12 people and all of us agreed!

    Verdict – Spicy Empire serves up extremely spicy food of average quality. We prefer the Sichuan restaurants Crouching Tiger in Redwood City, and China Village in Albany over Spicy Empire.

    Signature Dishes – Spicy fish fillet, cumin beef ribs, pancake couples delight.
