Good Szechuan style chinese and Hot & Sour Soup

Awni Oct 2, 2003 01:48 PM

I am Looking for a recommnedation for a good spot in the west end (Islington & Bloor area) for Szechuan style chinese food, one that has good hot & sour soup.

I am not referring to large chain style places like holy chow or the Mandarin...

    Awni, I don't think I've ever seen an authentic Chinese restaurant in the Bloor-Islington area. It's just not that kind of area. Unfortunately, Chowhounds gotta trek to where the good soup is, instead of looking for whatever's in our 'hood.

    Check out the previous hot & sour soup thread started by our trusty estufarian. Good luck!

      Ooops, sorry, I was pasting the wrong link (can you tell that I was just on the Not About Food board?).

      Here's estufarian's thread!

        Heather beat me to it!
        I'm still checking out the recommendations - but so far nothing west of Bathurst. Good luck.
