About two years... early 2011, I think?
Yeah, I dug the soup too, just a nice, simple broth with a little bit of meat and vegetable.
I do disagree about the fuqi feipian. I thought it was a really nice version. The chiles were pretty toasty... perhaps that was the source of the bitterness you didn't like? Anyway, I dug it.
I asked her the name of this one in Chinese, and the moment I did I realized that I couldn't remember the name of the dish I thought it was, so I think
this was Liang Zhang Pi, or a close cousin thereof? The same one we got at Chef Chiang? Anyway, I enjoyed this one a lot more. Nice dish.
Good stuff. This genre of battered, deep-fried, stir-fried with spicy sweet sauce is so easy to make a total mess of. This was a very solid version.
Dead on... so good. Their clay pots have been great here. I really need to try more of them. Next time, get the one with meatballs and cabbage!
Every time -- such a joy to eat here. It was awesome to get a good group there again
