      I think they call it "bacon" there rather then "pork belly"

      1. re: galangatron

        Tried that cucumber with garlic last week for the first time - a really amazing dish, and I generally avoid anything remotely healthy. One of those "sum equaling more than the total of its parts" kind of dishes.

      2. Our Favorites:
        Hot & Sour Wonton soup
        Dan Dan Noodles
        Sichuan wonton with chili sauce (same as the wontons in the soup)
        diced chicken with chili sauce
        Fish with Napa cabbage in spice chili sauce
        sichuan style meatball

          1. re: trufflehound

            I constantly crave the woodear mushroom with chilis dish. It is a cold appetizer and just a great refreshing way to start the meal and get your palate ready for the heat.

            1. re: iloveporkbelly

              I feel the same way about the bamboo with spicy wonder sauce. It's cold bamboo with a very smoky tasting oil that's more garlicky than hot.

          2. I love Dan Dan noodles. Any other fish or tofu recommendations?

              Well many love the mapo tofu, im not a fan of that dish in general.
              The jingu fish fillets are the only 3 pepper dishes on the menu, so if you like hot thats a good choice

              1. re: jcess7

                My absolute favorite thing on the menu is Gangou dry fish filets. I think they might actually be 3 peppers too (though I think they should only be 2). Also the Fish Filets and Napa Cabbage w Spicy Chili Sauce is my husband's favorite. Besides those fish dishes, we also like to order fresh bamboo shoots with either sesame oil or wonder sauce, Chengdu spicy dumplings, dried chicken w chili sauce, and chicken w cayenne.

                1. re: MrsCheese

                  i'll second the gangou dry fish fillets; i always order it when i'm there. just thinking about that dish makes me want to head over there...

              2. the spicy pork dumpling appetizer - I could eat 3 of them as a meal !!!!
