A few new items at Sichuan Garden in Woburn

Had a good "yow that's spicy and tasty" experience at Sichuan Garden. Haven't been there for a while for dinner, but on the chinese menu, there are a few new items.

They have Chongquin Chicken (aka, fried chicken chunks on a mound of chilis and sichuan peppers) which is much tastier than the Fuloon variant and has decent size chicken chunks. They also have something called Pen Pen Shrimp which is shrimp and garlic chunks in a slightly sweet chili soup base...the garlic had an intense almost roasted garlic taste, and the shrimp was shelled and I was too lazy to peel them so I tried ScubaSteve's technique of eating it w/ the shell on which wasn't bad at all. We also had something called Tai En Fish which is really eel chunks in sauce w/ chili peppers, and some weird chewy root vegetable; the eel was very tender/smooth but had way too many bones in it (it's not a chinese thing to filet eel) and the sauce was tasty.

The waiter warned us about the Chong Quin Chicken being spicy and we said we had no problems with it, so the chef didn't hold back. The owner also stopped by to ask if it was spicy enough :-)
