Anyone tried Hot Kitchen on 2nd Ave?

Has anyone tried this place yet? I saw this post but haven't been there:

  1. Passed by it yesterday; about to go for brunch now. Will file a dispatch.

    1. I stopped in this weekend for the lunch special. Lunch is a fantastic deal. Main course, soup, and rice choice for $7, all large portions and very delicious.

      For my meal I had Double Cooked Pork, Hot & Sour Soup, and Vegetable Fried Rice. The Hot & Sour was one of the spicier versions I've had and I enjoyed it. The Double Cooked Pork was excellent, especially over the rice. It was loaded with chili oil and seeds, peppers and thinly sliced pork belly.

      1. Here's the web site with menu and lots of photos! Food looks good; maybe a cross between Grand Sichuan St Marks (I spy soup dumplings) and Szechuan Gourmet (frogs on the menu!).

        1. Love the name! That does look like a good version of Twice Cooked Pork. Website photos look interesting. Is that a secret room I detect in the back, with red chairs?

          1. Fish Head right at top of the specials. Anyone tried it? I'll need to stop by soon and report back.

            Could also use a good american chinese place for delivery. EV now lacking in that dept since the new mgmt at Yummy House.
