ChiliSpot is a Sichuan, Chinese and seafood eatery based in St. Louis, MO, Columbus, OH and Orlando, FL. Three distinct locations, three distinct food types. After a recent visit to the St. Louis destination, I recommend this spot to anyone who isn’t afraid of spice or authentic taste.
According to ChinaSichuanFood.com, “Sichuan cuisine originated in the Sichuan province of China. The province is located in southwest China and is renowned for its spicy food…Although it is famous worldwide for its mala flavor, there is much more to Sichuan food than just mala. Sichuan food is famous for its fresh ingredients, variety of cooking techniques, and tons of other flavors.”

Share with family and friends at ChiliSpot
While you can certainly get your own entree or appetizer, ChiliSpot is an ideal location for sharing food. The plentiful flavor and wide variety of food types means that everyone can try distinct flavors and learn their favorites. On my visit I tasted Storm Fish Fillet, Dry Pot Chicken, Sautéed Lamb with Cumin and spicy Sezchuan Wontons. Your table will also be presented with a large bowl of white rice that is refilled on request.
Authentic taste, full of flavor and spice
I already stated that I would highly recommend visiting ChiliSpot – unless you are afraid of spice or authentic flavors. I myself enjoy spicy food, and a majority of the menu will have heat involved. This menu also goes beyond what some standard diners may be accustomed too, such as pork kidney, frog, pork intestines and beef stomach.
I almost always recommend going out of your comfort zone to try new things, but don’t worry you can find more commonplace items on the menu as well. Our meal consisted of chicken, fried fish and lamb.
ChiliSpot isn’t focused on street presence
ChiliSpot highlights its food, not its exterior. The outside of these establishments seem nonchalant, so don’t expect a photoshoot outside of a wildly themed eatery. Instead, get your cameras (and appetite) ready for the meal. You can see on Yelp, those who do step inside are very impressed. All three locations offer English and Mandarin speaking staff, as well as take out or dine-in options.
Maybe this type of food isn’t your thing. How about St. Louis BBQ? Salt + Smoke BBQ in St. Louis combines affordable prices with delectable flavors, the way BBQ should be.
