The hounds were right - this place is special indeed.

Puff bread with slightly spicy/sweet beef: the crust has that slight crunch and bubbles that reminds me of Cheesebread. The filling is also great. Superb !

Sour beans (string type?) and julienned pork: the beans are slightly pickled. The combo is delicious. I never has this dish before but I like it a lot.

Hunan Smoked pork with leek: the thin slices of fatty pork have good smoky taste. Not for those who hates fats/oil. Very good

Peking duck: the usual prep, deboned. The skin could be crispier but it's fine. All the usual ingredients are provided like hoisin, shredded green onion but the buns are replaced by the thin soft tortilla-like pancake. Good

Boilef spicy beef is an excellent version of this authentic Szechuan dish. The numbing hot peppercorn taste is strong - good idea to reserve at end of meal as it destroyed the taste buds.

At end of meal, slices of watermelon was provided.

Service is minimal as usual in Chinese places but they gladly provide everything we needed when I raise my hands. The owner (Tien?) approached and welcomed us.

This will be our regular stops if we venture out to this area. Total bill with 10% tips is $51.00
