OK, so obviously not the real name of this dish. I just returned from China where I discovered a dish I'd never seen nor heard of. Although I had it all over Beijing, it was usually listed as a southern specialty - one place even called it a Guilin dish, although I didn't see while I was in Guilin.
The dish is simple: shredded potato fried with spicy peppers, lots of cilantro and spices. The potato was not very greasy (although maybe I was immune to oil/grease from all the yoh tiao I was eating in the mornings?) and the whole dish tasted like a spicy Chinese version of American hash browns.
Anyone know where to find this dish in the L.A. area?
Ta much - and eventually, I'll be posting about a few places over on the China board.
