Rating: Just okay
I was excited to find a “real” Szechuan restaurant not too far from my son’s robotics.
Typical mini-mall location.
They made some effort to decorate.
Chongqing Cold Flat Noodle. Unfortunately fairly bland.
Spicy Wonton Soup. Dumplings were good but the broth needed more flavor.
Special Chinese Lettuce in casserole. This can be a great dish but this version was a little soggy.
Twice Cooked Potato Slice. I really wanted twice cooked pork. This actually tasted great — it was the best dish — but potato is so carby.
Pickled Chinese Cabbage & Riby Beef in Special Szechuan Chili. This was a bit sour and the meat is certainly “fatty.”
Overall, Szechuan Place had a menu with all the regular goodies but the flavors were a bit bland and flat. I was hoping for more GuYi type quality. One of these days I’ll have to go back and try it again.
