What does one do when your spouse wants to order only items we've already tried and I'm on a quest to try every item on the extensive menu? Since I was already in the doghouse I took one for the team and we ordered items we'd already had.
Dan dan noodles: just amazing. Hot and porky. Oily and smoky. All this for $4.95.
Pork dumplings in chili oil: these are consistently good, though I quibble the sausage is a bit small.
Three pepper chicken: I love this dish. The three peppers are (I think) chile oil, red pepper flakes and a green pepper like a poblano or something smaller. I asked for this dish "hot" and it was incendiary. The chicken was dark meat, as it should be in a dish like this.
Salt and pepper squid: this dish never does much for me but the kids like it. It's not too spicy. They bread it which doesn't make sense.
Rice cakes with stir fried pork: this dish is just great. When we ate at Momofuko in NYC, we had a similar dish. It's a non spicy pork dish which contrasts with the dan dan noodles and the chicken. Very good stuff
