    If you're not a fan of a lot of peppercorn in your food ... Do not come here. My first and last visit ... I couldn't taste the dish because the taste of peppercorn and its tongue numbing sensation :(

    Chongqing chicken: The copious chilies telegraph the intense heat in this fantastic heap of fried chicken nuggets. It’ll burn but hurt so good you won’t be able to stop. Read more
