I dismissed reading a lot of China Village (in Albany) reports in the past, and after picking up the CH guide book, was floored to find out that the chef used to work at a known hotel in Beijing.

I guess I'm a little confused as the region of cuisine the chef is good at. It seems to be mainly Sichuan, but are there Pekingese style dishes as well?

Am now very intrigued and willing to check it out sometime with my folks. I was wondering what dishes to avoid, and what are the signature dishes? I'm more interested in the Chinese menu, a white board Chinese specials (if they have one), or better yet, "hidden menu" secret dishes you can custom order that they excel in.
