King of Szechuan

A couple of weeks ago we popped into King of Szechuan Chinese Restaurant and enjoyed a couple of spicy dishes.

The decor is unassuming and basic. We liked the art prints adorning the wall.

We began quite mildly with steamed dumplings and hot tea. The ground meat was tasty and the dumpling wasn't overly thick.

We had heard that the Hot Pot was great, but we decided to try that another time. Hubby went with his old standby: Kung Pao Chicken and I tried Shredded Pork with Garlic Sauce.

Both were spicy, but were flavored with different types of hot peppers. Mine was so hot, my eyes started watering (fair warning - I don't eat a lot of hot foods - this dish may not taste that hot to some of you). We both liked the addition of zucchini to both dishes. Both were served with white rice. A satisfying Chinese lunch with enough to take home and enjoy for lunch the next day.

I'd like to go back and try the Hot Pot. For you who are a tad more adventurous, King of Szechuan offers tripe, pork lung, and grilled eel.
