Wu Liang Ye At Lunch

michele cindy | Aug 7, 2008 06:48 AM

I've been to Wu Liang Ye 86th St for lunch 2x's now. I ordered from the lunch special menu, the 1st time, kung po shrimp, and yesterday, tangerine chicken. Both times I requested the food to be VERY VERY VERY spicy, also pointing out that my daughter who is 7 wouldn't be eating it, so please make it really spicy. What I got were dishes that were super mild. I ended up using an entire dish of hot chili oil to spice it up more. After the 2nd visit I asked the waiter what do I do the next time I come back, he said "just tell me when you order, the kitchen will do as I ask". Is this just something that happens at lunch? Any other suggestions? I'm not up there all that much, but had always heard good things about this place.
