The toothpicks supposedly keep the meat from clumping together in the wok.
Yes , I believe you are referring to me and my ilk - I love that dish. I don’t mind spending 20 minutes or more sifting thought the chili’s to find a morsel of meat, sucking the sauce off the tiny bones and chomping on the chili soaked lotus and other veggies.
I also like the draft and bottled beer selection as well as the sake.
I like the king pao chicken the most. The fish is my second favorite. I did not like the rabbit at all, like you said, it was very bony. I’m used to fat European style rabbits.
Nice! You survived the Rabbit with no issue? Have you tried Level 4 “Hot” at Howlin’ Ray’s yet (w/ Ghost Chili Pepper)?
Once. Brutal. Did not enjoy. Long time ago (truck days, not brick and mortar).
Thanks @Bookwich. I’ll give their kung pao chicken a try next time. Loved both fish dishes I tried!
Glad you enjoyed that. It was the only dish that I enjoyed from my first (and only visit), and I just loved it (there was something wonderfully comforting about it). The other dishes I ordered made so little of an impression on me that I can’t even remember what I got. I def didn’t order the ribs or the mapo tofu (which I think @Bookwich also really enjoys?), so perhaps I need to make a return visit.
Thanks. Yah I think the Pork Ribs and Ma Po Tofu are standout dishes here for sure. You might give them a try along with your favorite noodles and that’ll make for a nice dinner.
