When people talk about Sze Chuan, one of the first thoughts that come to mind would be the fiery hot flavors and their emphasis on “mala” - which is pieced together using two Chinese characters. The “ma” means the numbing sensation brought about by the peppers while “la” refers to the spiciness of the dish. And together, the “mala” factor in dishes provides a fragrance like none other, and also a powerful kick that sweeps many off their feet. Serving iconic dishes such as kung pao chicken, hunan chicken, and Szechuan chicken, Szechaun Palace is definitely the place to go to if you are looking to get a piece of that fiery action!

Sampans are Chinese wooden boats, and this term is derived from the Chinese words “three planks”, which sounds like sampan. Many decades ago, Chinese fishermen headed out to the sea or rivers in their sampans to fish and they would bring back their yield to prepare and cook before selling it directly on their boats. Even to this day, this practice can be found in some places like Thailand, at their boat market. Working off this inspiration, Sampan Chinese Restaurants aims to bring the freshest and the most exotic and unheard delicacies straight from the sea to your table. You think you know seafood? Well, be prepared to be surprised and for your socks to be blown off here at Sampan Chinese Restaurant!

Sampan Chinese Restaurant

Address: 985 Peters Creek Pkwy, Winston-Salem, NC 27103, United States
