From Eater Los Angeles (
"It’s no secret that Sichuan cuisine has been gaining in popularity not only in East Asia, but across the United States. Even for those who haven’t encountered authentic Sichuan food, a passing familiarity with Chinese menus will offer, at one point or another, exposure to a dish at least derived from the cuisine of Sichuan province. Kung Pao Chicken, a mainstay of westernized Chinese cuisine and Panda Express menus everywhere, originated there relatively recently in the 19th century."
