Anise/ Sichuan in Kendall Sq

9lives | Oct 6, 200605:18 PM     12

Don't walk, run to this place.

A few of us had dinner last night; nice room in Kendall Place; by the Blue Room. Bartender is Frank, recently from #9, and is joined by Cedric; who some may know from Federalist, Silvertone and Les Zygomates.

We started with a round of drinks. I had a gin/lemonade type thing that was delicious.

For ordering we put ourselves in the very capable hands of Cedric..Bring it on; we are adventurous eaters and like it spicy. He didn't disappoint.

Started with sliced pork bellies in hot garlic sauce, pigs ears/peanuts, sichuan style flower tofu, wild fern with bamboo and cilantro, pork wontons, braised frog legs with ginger, and sichuan spicy rabbit, green beans with a special sichuan pickle (another order of this came later).

Then a second round...hot and numb chicken, dan dan noodles with pork, pork ribs, and baby bok choy/mushrooms

Finished with battered chicken in black bean sauce and hot peppers and aromatic duck.

Excellent meal all around. I'm reading the menu and it's owned by the same people that own Chili Garden in Medford.

High quality ingredients prepared beautifully. Friendly and professional service.

Unfortunately not very busy on a Thurs night but they are doing a good lunch biz
