Go Right Now to HK Palace in Falls Church

Just had lunch at Hong Kong Palace at Seven Corners. According to the waitress the chef just returned from the Sichuan Province with special spices and ingredients normally unavailable. We had already ordered three old standby dishes, and when we inquired about the menu on the wall, she explained that they had some new specials.

No English translation available, but we ordered the dish with the symbols for "mouth, mouth, crispy, good smelling." The mouth symbol looks like a plain box. You can't miss it.

The dish was cubed chicken and vegetable with an unusual ingredient: small hot peppers that were hollowed out and filled with a crunchy sesame and peanut mixture. Addictive stuff, like Chex-mix for hotheads.

She said there was more too, but we'll have to go back.
