Little Szechuan Express in Fremont

Han Lukito | Jan 28, 200208:22 PM

This is a branch of the Little Szechuan in San Mateo. My dad recommended this because of its authentic style. He was born in mainland China and so was his wife. This place is next to the Ranch 99 market in Fremont. Address:34420-G Fremont Blvd.,Fremont, CA 94538, TEL: (510) 608 - 0585

It has a take out counter with the usual entrees like sweet sour pork, etc. But the manu has lots of Szechuan dishes that are not usually found elsewhere. It looks authentic and all of its customers looked chinese. The good thing, the menu has its english translations. The menu is also on the web link below.

Appetizer-Spicy Combination: mix of thinly sliced beef, tongues and others (tripe?) all marinated in red coloured sauce. The sauce probably contains chili oil and some spices. It is not hot in my opinion. Definitely has its own unique pleasant taste. I only liked the beef and tongue slices and ignored the others.

Spicy cold noodle w/ ground pork: Lots of noodles and some cucumber juliennes and pork. The red coloured sauce was drizzled on top. I don't recommend this one.

Dry cooked shredded pork: this is the best of all. The pork strips were cooked almost to a crisp. Slivers of red chiles were also mixed in. Again, not hot in my opinion.

Beef w/ sa cha sauce: sliced beef and mushrooms in thickened dark brown coloured sauce. The sauce does not seem oyster based but too salty in my opinion.

Beef stew noodle soup: small chunks of beef and watercress mixed in a noodle soup. The broth is dark brown and again too salty.

I will appreciate suggestions of authentic dishes to try since I am not too familiar with this cuisine style- see the menu link below.
