Pyromania at Chengdu Taste in Alhambra

Chandavkl | Jul 3, 2013 01:53 PM

Having prototypical Cantonese taste buds I'm not the person to judge who has the spiciest food in town. But I have my suspicions that Chengdu Taste, whose recent opening was flagged by Tony C, and successor to Golden Shanghai at 828 W. Valley Bl., might be up there. First of all, I don't recall seeing a menu with such a high percentage of items marked extra spicy. Secondly, while I was in the restaurant, an agitated Asian customer was apparently complaining about the food being too spicy. Had I gone to the spicy side of the menu I would have ordered the rabbit in younger sister's secret sauce, but instead I had the tofu fish casserole, which really was a soup. Extremely tasty, so somebody in the kitchen knows how to cook. I'll let the rest of you rate the spicy stuff.
