lao sze chuan

Last night tallasiandude & I took a trip to chinatown with H & J to check out Lao Sze Chuan. I think next time I will get the hotpot, since it is renowned for that, but this time we just ordered up a buncha stuff to see how it was. We didn't order particularly wisely, since we got a few things called "house special" which turned out to get us a lot of similarly chili-rific sauces. But the salt & pepper spare ribs were dee-licious, and the dong po pork was very luscious and tasty (if in no way resembling the dish I know as dong po pork -- this one had LOTS of chili pepper in a bright red sauce). And there was a dish of stirfried young soybeans with a salty-sour pickled vegetable, and the fish head soup had lots of lovely seafood, if not very much in the way of actual fish heads. Worth another exploratory mission.
