Just wanted to say, I just discovered this board recently and on the strength of what I have read here, convinced my husband and two friends to go to Sichuan Garden last night. I will never be happy with Chef Chang's again! It was great! We had the steamed mini pork buns, the tofu crepe, lo mein (which was called the best lo mein ever by the person who ordered it), Camphor (sp?) tea duck, prawns with the chili sauce, and chicken and cashews. Also ordered a bottle of what I assume wa sthe same Pinot Grigio you guys had the other night. The wine complimented to food perfectly. Anyway, thanks for the tip!
(We also tried Tu y Yo in Somerville last week and enjoyed that as well!)
I live in Malden, which is by and large a wasteland for restaurants, but have any of you tried Tivoli's? It's pretty good and really inexpensive.
