Golden Garlic - western san jose

I tried this place recently.

Chef is from Chengdu. My dining companions speak chinese (one brit by way of hong kong, the other native chinese), so I didn't order. We got a lot of the "classics". The "1000 chili chicken" was a different style than I had before, more chili in the chicken itself, possibly the hottest dish on the table. Some kind of lamb dish (not cumin), some kind of fish fillet. Everything else was above average in that it all had heat and flavor, lots of peppercorns. A little "all the same" though.

GF said "I wouldn't drive all the way over there but it was pretty good".
