Looking to hit up OOTK tmrw. I'm overlooking the funny name and seek good grub. What have you had that you've enjoyed? Thanks!

    I like the Szechuan beef noodle soup, and the steamed dumplings.

      The beef in chili sauce is excellent. Really tender, lots of oily spice. The pan-fried dumplings are top notch, too. Pork, cabbage and garlic in a tender wrapper. They reminded me of Wisteria House's dumplings.

        Isn't the chef here ex-Wisteria House?

        The ma po tofu is indeed outstanding, as are those dumplings. All the dumplings I've tried so far are great, in fact.

        Curried lamb skewers are good, as are the dumplings in spicy chili sauce. My husband says ma po dofu is good too.

              i think that " one of A kind " and " one of THE kind" mix ups are a most interesting part of the name of this place. i cant figure out if its genius or chinglish.
