I've been meaning to try this place for a while. It is inconveniently located directly across the street from the purveyors of my favorite burger in town (R.F. O'Sullivan's), but I managed to resist the siren song of chopped beef long enough to try it.

Get past the usual gwailo-friendly dishes (General Gau and pals) and there's a long list of Szechuan, Shanghainese, and Beijing dishes. I only had room for one: "dry-fried spicy chicken", a dish that was loaded, I mean loaded, with dried and fresh chillis. Delicious, and I'm still buzzing. Can't wait to get back and try one of the whole-fish dishes, and many others that looked great.
