Ultimate kung pao in Des Moines-Ankeny-Ames?

Where do you get your favorite kung pao chicken in the Des Moines-Ankeny-Ames area? I like it fiery hot and with plenty of vegetables. In Ames I've tried two places: at 888, you get lots of vegetables (green pepper carrot water chesnuts) but it's very mild. On a scale of 1-5 with 5 being very spicy hot, it rates maybe a 1. At Mandarin, you get yummy velveted chicken and really good rice, but all I got for vegetables was 3 pieces of green pepper. On the spicy hot scale, maybe a 3. Both were good in their own ways, but where do you go in central Iowa for great kung pao?
