Spicy fish at Rice Garden

Aromatherapy | Jul 1, 2004 01:25 PM

A special of "braised fish fillets in spicy sauce," if I'm remembering correctly, was really chunks of bone-in fish (no idea what kind) and tofu cubes in a bowl of spicy (dried red chili) brown soupy sauce, over napa cabbage. The fish version of steamed beef w/napa, I guess. Very enjoyable but not life-altering. Better when I gave up on chopsticks and just spooned it in. The specials board also had a sour fish soup, kinda wish I'd ordered that. So maybe they're offering more fish choices lately?

At 7:30 p.m. on a Wednesday I had no trouble getting a table, in fact I had a whole 4-top to myself. Several folks wandered in for take-out, one of whom introduced himself as Zatan (how was the pork with cumin?).

They showed me the chef's portfolio of food pictures. Very cool. I can see a small chow-dinner in my future, later this month maybe.
