grand sichuan favorites for midtown west branch?

i recently moved near the midtown west grand sichuan, and i love it. my favorites so far have been (in no particular order) dan dan noodles, spicy double cooked pork, beef filets with chili sauce, prawns with garlic sauce, and salt & pepper shrimp. but, of course, the expansive menu has lots of other awesome sounding stuff as well.

any favorites/recommendations?

  1. I really like the pumpkin dishes at Grand Sichuan. But as I've said in other threads, that GS has serious delivery quality issues, so I'd taste it in the restaurant.

      My faves:
      HUNAN BEEF!!!!! A must try!
      Wonton in hot oil.
      Shrimp dumpling in sesame oil.

    2. Fresh killed spicy auzou chicken.

      1. I actually hated their double cooked pork. Dishes I always get are: diced rabbit, ox tongue & tripe, and sea cucumber hot&sour soup.

          I think I've tried the double cooked pork twice there and it was great both times.

        2. The fresh young chicken with schezuan peppercorns (I forget the name of the dish)
          the peppercorns blew me away the first time I tried them, not your typical 'spicy' flavor.

          1. under maos favorites is a dish of teent tiny minced pork with chives and chilis and something tart. fiery hot but impossible to stop eating.
