    The cold salads are the way to go here. My favorites are the bamboo in chili oil and the bean curd with celery

    Go with a local. Anything with the Szechwan peppercorns, especially the cold stuff, is really good.

    Mapo tofu is good - very silky. Flavors is general are delicious (if you love spicy)!

    The food is every bit as good, beginning with the cold plates of eggplant, cucumbers, honeycomb tripe, seaweed, bamboo shoots, and baby eels bathed in fiery oils. Read more

    The cucumbers in sesame oil are a great compliment to the rest of the spicy dishes.

    Spicy & Tasty's smoked tea duck takes the cake for us. Cured before cooking, it's intensely flavored—best to be eaten with a side of something starchy. Read more

    Try the scallion and egg fried rice, "tinted green from fragrant scallion oil and speckled with bits of fried egg and fresh scallions." It's a pro tip from the owner herself. Read more

    Try the bamboo in hot spicy sauce appetizer, the scallion fried rice, and the whole fish covered in fried bean curd. But really, whatever you order will blow you away. The food here is amazing!

    Go for the cold rice noodles. The rest will leave you unsatisfied. Beware! The szechouan chicken is fried.

    Crispy whole tilapia in sweet and sour sauce is a real crowd pleaser. My favorite cold dish is the simple celery and dried bean curd.

    Get the cucumbers in oil appetizer, but don't eat them until the spicier food has come out. You'll be thankful to have something to cool your mouth down after a few bites of the good stuff!

    Of all the stinky tofu dishes, the fried version is tamest, so if you want to just try it, go for that one.
