re: Mickey Blue
I've probably been to SG 40 times and had 20 different dishes - all were very good. That's usually the sign of an outstanding kitchen. Why not just order what appeals to your palate and trust them? I'll bet you'll make out just fine.
Edited to agree with A&W - stick to the Szechuan dishes. I don't know if the others are decent or not. It's not their area of expertise.
Anything Chen Dou.
Anything fried. I like the chunks of chicken in garlic sauce. The diced fried chicken with chilis is good too, though I don't like all the bones.
Mapo tofu, which I think is the best in Manhattan.
Love those spicy string beans.
They also have a separate szechuan menu that I haven't explored much yet.
I have had the Mapo Tofu about twice a week for lunch since they opened and would concur that it may be the best in Manhattan, I've occasionally had other things, but nothing has bested the Mapo Tofu. The hot and sour soup is not consistant, but some days it is great.
