Ma Peche-- any advice on value & quality?
Is Mr Chang's midtown joint worth it?
last summer, Ma Peche was serving a side dish of snap peas with yogurt, coffee grounds, and peanuts. it's one of the most memorable dishes i've ever had. every ingredient was so perfectly paired and portioned but otherwise left alone. it was such a true expression of flavor in the most natural sense.
the current rice cake dish with sausage, spinach and sichuan pepper is a must if you like heat.
