No 7 Building C, Poly Centre, No. 1 JinXiu Road, Wuhou District
Slowly cooking meats over oak, pecan or mesquite woods is an age-old Texas tradition. This classic American cuisine travelled to Chengdu – from Beijing – with its first Texas-style Bar-B-Q house. At Tim’s, they hand-rub their beef briskets with a secret blend of spices and smoke them slowly to allow the flavours of the meat, smoke and spices to come together. They also have a great selection of drinks, shots and margaritas.

La Cave is a wine bar, that also does wholesale sales, and delicious cheese and cold cut platters.

Uncle Z’s is an artisan sourdough pizza company, run by the passionate Zoltan from Hungary. He delivers freshly made, delicious Italian pasta, salads and sides with pizzas made from his own sourdough starter.
