Sichuan Accent

Posted by familypast April 26, 2012 in the Group I Have a Question.

I go to a Sichuan restaurant in my town that has delicious food. Whenever I say 好吃 hǎochī to the owner, she repeats it back to me (kindly correcting my pronunciation) with more of a "ts" sound for the chī 吃.  

I'm a newbie/elementary learner, so I'm sure I'm sure my pronunciation is off, but the way she says it is different from how I hear others say it.  Is this due to her Sichuan accent?
