“I came to Chengdu for the first time about three years ago and I fell in love with the city at first sight,” said Phil Smith, the General Manager of Fairmont Chengdu Hotel & Residences.
Phil Smith had been to many cities in China, such as Shanghai, Wuxi, Shenzhen and Beijing—he has been in China for about eight years—before he came to Chengdu. Now he and his family are enjoying their adaption to local life in the city. "To us, Chengdu is a paradise for gourmets," said Phil, "We all like spicy foods, and my favorites are hotpot and Dandan noodles."
In fact, his addiction to local cuisine has come to such an extent that he has even downloaded an app from the Internet that enables the family to order ingredients online to make Sichuan dishes themselves. "I am now an expert in making the chili oil and several local sauces," Phil boasted. The chili oil is indispensable for many of the local foods, including Jiaozi, noodles and so on.
Phil is always busy as a bee but, when he has free time, he would travel around the city with his family. "Chengdu combines modernity and traditions and has a comfortable lifestyle," he said, "Friendly people and beautiful sceneries…and the foods are fantastic."
"I have also learnt to speak a little Chengdu dialect, for example, Chengdu Hao Ba Shi (Chengdu is so comfortable, 成都好巴适). When I talk to my friend about Chengdu, I would say Hao Ba Shi."
