    The dry chili chicken is spicy but oh so good. It's in the middle of not exactly Americanized but not too traditional Chinese. Get extra water and enjoy.

    Everything is good, but my favorite is the boiled beef in spicy Szechuan sauce. Be prepared to drink lots of water. Check in on Yelp to get free spring rolls.

    Three Chili Chicken: Affectionately known as "crack chicken" for its truly addictive powers, the real secret behind this dish the combination of Sichuan peppercorns and chiles.
