Why Fei Teng Yu Xiang (Zhichun road) is special ?
Fei Teng Yu Xiang is well known for its shuizhuyu (spicy boiled fish), this chain of Sichuan restaurants attracts a crowd of predominately white collar professionals. If you wish, you can see the live fish you selected for your meal hacked into pieces. The shuizhuyu, or spicy water-boiled fish, is a misnomer for the restaurant's most popular dish. The fish is actually cooked mostly in oil with mouth-burning spices-but it's still decicious. Aside from their signature dish, the extensive menu includes a range of spicy Sichuan favorites: lazi ji (spicy diced chicken), shuizhu qingwa (spicy boiled frog), xiang la xie (spicy crab) and mapo dofu (spicy bean curd).

Tips for you
Lots of red chillies floating on a watery oily soupy base with fresh prawns and other seafood. Its not easy to get seated at this place (its very popular with the locals) and don't come in if you are offended by other diners smoking while eating and absolutely don't come in if you don't like chillies...this is a smoky,spicy, noisy restaurant good for people in large groups eating together not intimate conversations. We had a huge hot pot, fried mushrooms, cold noodles and hot water. We underestimated the chillies though.
One of the most authentic szechuan restaurants I've managed to find, though it's location has changed from that listed, there are branches all over the city. My favourite is on Chunxiu Lu, plenty of space, but always busy, attentive staff [generally - it is China] and great value for money. Try the Shui Zhu Yu or the Prawns in Garlic - the menu has English translations if your Chinese isn't great.
Their tongue-numbing, spicy shuizhuyu is just one of the dishes you won’t soon forget. Also, the bustling environment is very Beijing–it’s a good spot to get a feel for the local restaurant scene
