Lao Sze Chuan vs. the field

ramenbound | Nov 13, 2012 07:42 PM

Brainstorming a return to the windy city and I am looking to weave in a meal that kicks things up on the taste buds.

Right now i am considering Lao Sze Chuan, unless any of you would advise otherwise (certainly open to suggestions). I am an LA/New Yorker, so well-acquainted with good Sichuanese.

I was wondering 1.) if the Chinatown location of Lao Sze Chuan is the most reliable/enjoyable and 2.) what dishes--given where I'm coming from--would be the most interesting, or perhaps different. ISO both well-executed staples as well as things that may be different from what I've had in the past, if they exist.
