Hidden Sichuan has been getting good reviews lately and so I headed out with my Chinese friends again to get their judgment. I'll be referring to my 2013 review of Sichuan Spice House in Orangevale because we had many of the same dishes to compare and I was with the same Chinese friends.
Hidden Sichuan is located in a shopping complex at Hwy 99 and Bond Rd. behind the In n Out Burger. It's nicely decorated with a wallpaper mural depicting ancient China along one wall and nice shelving and art on the others. There were tables and booths and everything was quite comfortable.
The menu was quite large. This time there were only three of us, so we ordered only four dishes. In the end we were pretty happy with three of the four but with noticeable differences from the same items we had at Sichuan Spice House. If you like, open the review link above so you can compare the pictures of the items as well.

|dan dan noodles|
|dry cooked shredded pork|
Overall my friends were quite happy with our outing. The only drawback, the same with Sichuan Spice House, is how far away it was. It's a definite excursion to reach either one if you don't live in those particular neighborhoods.
