Wula Buhuan, a new restaurant serving spicy, mouth-numbing Sichuan dishes, will open its doors in the Energy Corridor this week.

An update to the restaurant’s Facebook page indicates that it will open its doors at 13346 Briar Forest Drive on Wednesday, bringing classic Sichuan fare to the neighborhood. The restaurant’s small space is adorned with traditionally styled, hand-painted murals from Beijing-born, Houston-based artist Peter Wu, along with industrial handmade lighting fixtures, and modern wood panels on the walls.

As far as the food is concerned, diners can look forward to a menu of classic Sichuan dishes that ranges from spicy, creamy mapo tofu to cumin lamb, smoked duck, and kung pao chicken. There’s also an extensive selection of cold appetizers like garlic pork belly, chili oil dumplings, and Sichuan-style rabbit, along with a number of vegan and vegetarian dishes.

Houstonians craving a spicy Sichuan fix can now head to Wula Buhuan for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
