Cuisine Szechuan, 2350 Guy, corner with Sherbrooke
Nice surprise for us. Too cold and late to continue on a 3 bus trek to Chez
Schwartz, so we popped into nearest restaurant. Gong Bao Giant Shrimps and Peanuts were excellent: quality ingredients, perfectly spiced even for me, obviously made by chef/owner(?) who knows how to cook. $13 and yummy.
Hubby ordered baby bok choy, and the two proved to be winners for sharing.
We even enjoyed watching Chinese programs with no subtitles on the TV.
No, I didn't mention 'not too spicy', which I should have, but\when it came, despite having lots of hard, red chili pepper pieces that needed to be picked out carefully, the spicing was perfect.
Depth of flavor, but not too spicy for me, which was a delight.
I like spicy in theory, but can't tolerate much anymore.
I forgot to mention, cash only.

The original chef, Andy, left CS last year to our great dismay. Happily, he has just opened a new place on Monkland in NDG, called Gia Ba. Same tasty food, more inviting setting. Here's the thread about it.
