Village Voice's Description

You’re bound to get Spicy Face (flushed cheeks, tingling mouth, sweaty temples) after dining at this Sichuan restaurant in the East Village. For the best action, order the Chengdu-style hot pot. Reserve ahead, because only a few tables accommodate this do-it-yourself dining experience. If sticking to the regular menu, heed the suggested specials, marked with a pink dot, or opt for any of the "spicy and aromatic dishes," which are amped up with chiles and peppercorns. Top picks include the hot-and-sour sweet-potato noodles, spicy Sichuan dumplings, any of the dishes “in spicy broth,” and the dry-fried mei shan beef. But do take a pass on the American-Chinese entrées (General Tso's chicken, etc.).

Tips from foursquare

  • Serious Eats on 07/01/13

    Some of the best Chinese in the East Village, uncompromising in its use of chilies and Sichuan peppercorns.

  • @JaumePrimero on 07/02/13

    psyched to see non "ABC" style cuisine taking center stage. Ridiculously good value for the money.

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/05/12

    Try the hot and sour sweet potato noodle soup ($7) and enjoy the mouth-numbing sensation of slippery noodles bathed in a hot chili-oil broth, studded with bits of ground beef, peanuts and cilantro.

    Everything is spicy. Heaven. Frog with mix veggie in the hot pan is a must if you wanna try some really authentic Chinese food.

    You know the food is good here when you walk in and it's all Asian people. Holler. Love my rice !
