Just had the best flounder in szechuan sauce that I've ever ingested

courtesy of Szechuan's Dumpling in Arlington Heights. OH MY. Piping hot red chili oil decked to the nines with chili peppers, szechuan peppercorns, scallions, chips of garlic, with luscious flounder fillet bobbling within. I had a side of seaweed with garlic (aromatic, heavenly, like eating al dente pasta), and some of their AMAZING shrimp dumplings, which were finely wrapped and bursting with juices.
Oh Hounds, I simply had to crow! EAT HERE!

  1. Well now I have to go. After trying this dish a number of places, GDH is still my favorite, but always looking for another contender.

    1. OMG OMG OMG Swank you are making me drool. What's your parking strategy for SD? Being that it is on Mass Ave, I imagine some patience is required.

        I've been there a few times for lunch and was able to find parking near the restaurant each time during those hours. If not, you can turn uphill on Park St (I think) from Mass Ave, and there are parking spots on both sides of the street along the little hilly slope, right off Mass Ave.

          There's always spaces on that segment of Mass Av.

            Worst case, park at Penzey's up the street (down the street?) and force yourself to buy some spices. You can never have too many spices.


          2. I like the dish at GDH too, but I am planning to try the SC version. One caveat, as I recall, although the GEH version claims to have flounder, I don't believe it truly is. To be sure it is not that dreaded ubiquity tilapia, but some other fish cheaper than flounder.
