Szechuan Boy (China Gourmet) -- Thursday Report

johnb | Mar 16, 2006 03:22 PM

WE returned to Szechuan Boy for further dabbling in the menu. My short report as posted on Rockwell is:

Another great lunch. Among other things we had the #1 smoked sesame chicken (mightly rich), #7 five flavor beef tendon, #8 three flavor bean curd skin, #10 fish rolls (just like before), and #12 the Szechuan pickles which is crispy slices of vegetables--turns out chef uses what he has on any given day so the contents change. For mains we had #4 boiled fish (silky, great fish, with clear threads), #13 golden ribs (a real hit, succulent pork ribs served under a huge and addictive pile of golden soy/garlic/breadcrumby stuff, like Lake Windless prawns), and boiled beef with vegetables (not yet on menu but #44 on old TemptAsian menu which I brought along), and really good sesame/scallion pancakes. All good. $18 per person all in with generous tip.

I also must make a correction from my post in the previous thread. Steve was right. The Szechuan pickle dish #12 is the one he described, not the winter melon spears as I previously thought.
