This was once the premier Cantonese place around, but now it has been Sichuan for a while, you ma still need to ask for the special menu. One of my very favorite places. The beef with cumin is excellent, the lamb with cumin, the Dan Dan noodles, the Zhong’s spicy dumplings, and maybe the beef with bamboo shoots is my favorite dish. The spicy fish in hot pot is great (not the exact name of the dish but that’s what it is) and the specials are very reliable. Recommended, and let me know what you think. If you don’t order from the special menu, don’t even bother going. Right now the clientele is 100 pct. Chinese, a good sign. Note that they don’t have a listed phone number.

This Week in DC Reviews – April 14, 2006
Periodically, we will publish This Week in DC Reviews, a roundup of reviews of DC-area restaurants, with quick links to DC-area restaurant reviews and mentions from the previous seven days in blogs, magazines, and newspapers. We haven’t published a TWI…
I’m so glad I stumbled on this review! This is literally the best Chinese food I have had in years. We had the house special chicken, the triple delight, and the spicy tofu with pork. All were excellent. The triple delight really blew me away. The chicken was delicious although a bit challenging to eat. I can’t wait to go back and try more.
I grew up near San Francisco, so my standards for Chinese food are quite high. This is by far the best I’ve had since moving to the DC area. Some of my favorite dishes are the Chengdu Spicy Cold Noodles (great for takeout and left-overs since they are cold to begin with), Fish and Bean Curd with Spicy Sauce, and the Tiger Skin Peppers (careful with this one; sometimes is tame, but can also be VERY hot. The owner told me it just depends on the peppers they get on any given day). I have been getting a lot more home improvements done since discovering this place because going to Home Depot now gives me an excuse to pick up some HKP.
