I'm looking for a restaurant that serves gan bian si ji dou (干煸四季豆) with Szechuan peppercorns. I used to live in Xiamen and would eat this dish three times a week. Every time I order it here it comes without the numbing spice.
Also looking for a place that serves a good sweet and sour inside out fish, sōngshǔ guì yú (松鼠桂鱼).
...oh yeah and those deep fried toffee bananas (don't remember what they were called) that I used to get for desert
any help would be greatly appreciated
si ji dou:
Xiang Wei Lou.
Chengdu Taste has a lions mane fish that portrays essentially the same flavor as the squirrel fish, as well as the knife work.
It comes w/o numbing spice b/c that's not usually how you cook it.
Are the toffee bananas just chunks of banana covered w/ a sticky/hard sugar coating? If so, the Beijing Tasty House in Rosemead (same plaza as The Square) may have that. I know they have the apple and sweet potato variety.
