If you’ve never had Szechuan food, you might not be familiar with the numbing, cooling sensation of their spice. It burns, it cools, it numbs, and it’s oh so good. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how tough your stomach and anus are), this place isn’t as spicy as some other Szechuan places out there. It’s good though. Really good. Although I’m not sure I’ve ever had Szechuan food I didn’t love. By the end of the meal your tongue is on fire, your mouth is numb, and you’ve got a shivering feverish sweat going. All signs that you’ve had a good meal. Or need to go to a hospital.
