Northern Dumpling Kitchen inside of Times Square has always been my Northern Chinese Cuisine go-to place in Richmond Hill. Yesterday, for a change of scenery, I decided to follow my son's foot step and try out his favorite place instead. It was ' Szechuan Legend' inside of Commerce Gate.....one of FIVE northern Chinese cuisine places inside the same plaza!!
First off, the place was packed with a waiting line when we arrived....a good sign!
Overall, the food of our simple dinner was very tasty with some deep, multi-layer flavoring dishes. Spice level was just right for my liking. Rendition of a few dishes like the 'Cold sliced leg of pork in garlic chili oil' was a bit different from NDK's approach but equally delicious ( sweetish versus savory ). The pickled beansprouts hidden beneath the pork was surprisingly addictive! The crispy fried duck was grease-less, tender and delicious. Very similar to the French Duck Confit but with crispier skin and crunchy, edible bones! Stand out was a delicious spicy potato glass noodle with minced pork and crunchy peanuts. Possessing unfamiliar but very appealing and interesting flavor. Sauteed Pea-shoots was full of wok-hay.
Despite of a full house, the all female serving team was very friendly and attentive.
IMO, better food than Asian Legend in the same plaza and worthy of a return.
