Best spicy fish filet in hot chili sauce?

lnbish May 18, 2011 02:02 PM

I'm meeting up with a friend for dinner this weekend, and she requested a Chinese restaurant in the San Gabriel Valley that serves spicy fish filet in a hot chili sauce. Any recs out there for this dish? I think either Hunan or Szechuan style would be OK. Thank you!

    you can get fish at lots of places and then ask for chili sauce, vinegar, etc.

      Yunnan Garden...it ain't necessarily pretty to look at, but definitely spicy (and will take the chill off if it's still as cold outside as today).

          In addition to the excellent choices mentioned...

          Yunchuan Garden (Yunnan's sister restaurant and always spicier for me).
          Hunan's/Hunan Style Restaurant

            Concur. Usually you will see this on the menu as 水煮魚片 (shuǐ zhǔ yú piàn, "water-boiled fish slices"). Yunchuan Garden has excellent shuizhuyupian. Unfortunately their sister restaurant in Irvine does not, so when I want it in OC instead of SGV I go to Chongqing Mei Wei.

            thanks for the recs! i guess it's a pretty standard dish without much discrimination between all the restaurants suggested. we will try one of these places! thanks again!
