Szechuan Gourmet - Downhill alert?

Renguin | Jun 4, 2011 06:11 PM

I went to Szechuan Gourmet recently for a second consecutive disappointing meal. When my food came, i just thought to myself, "really?". I did not order any flagship spicy stuff - this time I got jingjiang rousi (pork in plum sauce?) and kungpao shrimp. The pork was unevenly cut up instead of the match stick style it should be. the sauce was watery and flavorless. The shrimp were ratty takeout chinese shrimp - not deveined. The time before this I went there I don't remember what I ordered but have noticed dishes that I've been ordering for years (like the two mentioned above) have been coming out noticeably more mediocre. Has anyone else noticed this as well?
