i was more than a little apprehensive as when i entered, the first thing i saw was a patron fanning his open mouth, then draining his cup and then the cup belonging to someone else at the table. so i went back to the car and got a towel as my capsaicin response looks more like a histamine response.
we also tried the pig ears & cucumbers.
pig ears are pig ears.
i'm used to smashed cucumbers with garlic/sesame oil/et al. these were more remiscent of japanese sunomono but more tart and less sweet,and something else in the flavor profile i didn't stop to analyze more closely.
we also enjoyed the youpo noodles. i wonder who makes them; they're on a par with the noodles i've had a liang's, xian tasty, kam hong et al.
the chong qing noodles (#1 on the menu) were ok though the egg was something i don't remember seeing with this version
finally, we had the spicy chicken.
minus the chicken
