Spicy Queen (SF)

Civil Bear | Feb 27, 201503:46 PM

Was going to hit up the new location of Burmese Kitchen but got sidetracked due to the fancy storefront of neighboring Spicy Queen. Billing itself as "The Best Szechuan Cuisine", how could I pass it up?

Looks like it is mostly about the Hot Pot at least during lunch. My DC and I didn't have that much time so we ordered from the lunch specials. I was happy to see cumin lamb offered so I went for that. Turned out to be a pretty good version although the onion to lamb ratio was a bit high. Also interesting that they used shaved lamb that I assume was meant for Hot Pot. Also ordered the Jalapeno Tiger Skin as an ap, which turned out to be quickly blanched jalapenos in a sesame/garlic oil. I was a bit surprised it actually worked, so I made sure to pack up the leftover oil so I can try it at home.

The room was warm and clean. The waiter...meh. I'll be back to try some of the other dishes.

Burmese Kitchen,
Spicy Queen
