boredom at Hu's Szechuan in Palms

joe | Mar 1, 200505:56 PM

Ever hopeful, humanity refuses to accept that there is no good Chinese food on the west side. I am an example of that, having gone to Hu's Szechuan. The scholars here have instructed us that the menu at Hu's, though it reminds me way too much of Panda Express with its orange chicken and all, consists of real Szechuan dishes. So okay, I ordered the chili dumplings and the twice-cooked pork. The dumplings, which I guess are their signature dish, were pleasant enough though not distinctive or challenging. But the twice-cooked pork tasted like nothing. The restaurant employees were sitting down to their own lunch as I was eating this stuff, and I was jealous of whatever it was they were eating, because I bet that it had some actual flavor to it. Bleah.
