Sichuan Gourmet in Brookline has a great new dish that doesn’t appear on the menu,” nightsky reports. It consists of “pieces of fish and chicken mixed with sliced potato, onion, pepper, and lotus root, all coated with a smoky/hot spice mixture. Dry rub texture, for those who are put off by the chili oil you often get in Sichuan dishes.”

KWagle tried it and thought it was excellent. “It’s oven-cooked so it has no oil. Delicious.” It’s described as “street barbecue,” and as KWagle explains, “even though it’s not literally cooked using the techniques of a street vendor, that’s the idea they are trying to capture.”
