what to order: dishes with Sichuan peppercorns

I love the spicy crispy tofu (extra spicy, numbing) at Joe's Noodle in Rockville.

Anybody got suggestions for the best spicy crispy tofu dishes at other restaurants or for other dishes with those awesome numbing peppercorns at both Joe's or other places?

  1. My three favorite for "ma la" (hot AND numbing) food are :
    H20 at Joe's (fish and napa cabbage in a big clear bowl of red gravy) described on the menu as fish over vegetables.
    The lamb in sizzling wok at China Star, Fairfax
    The chengdu noodles at Hong Kong Palace, Seven Corners, Falls Church, VA
