PHENOMENAL food. We came at a weird time (Portland just reopening, they only had 2 tiny outdoor cafe tables and hadn't gotten the beer/liquor sorted out) but hoooooooly mackerel the food. I could swim in the garlicky eggplant sauce, and the hot beef was to die for. Szechuan peppercorn has this flowery quality that can be overwhelming (*cough* the one time I made mapo tofu at home) but the flavors of our dinner were perfectly balanced and unlike anything else Portland has to offer.
Oh my god. I'm definitely eating here again. The gong bao chicken was good (very piquant, huge portion, like at least 12oz of meat huge) but the zhong dumplings were outstanding. Completely stole the show. They look exactly as advertised and they're perfectly 麻辣!Ordered thru Grubhub so wasn't aware of how large the portion sizes were... be advised the dumplings and rice are really a meal in themselves, if you get those and an entree you better be prepared to share with full review
I was really excited to come here as I love Szechuan cooking and am always on the hunt in particular for some dan dan mien (which to my non-educated self is basically noodles with a spicy and slightly sweet chili sauce with minced fried pork) and dumplings in hot chili oil (which also have this sweet brown paste with the chili oil). These dishes are basically the only standard I have for Szechuan cooking. The dumplings were fantastic but the noodles weren't my personal full review
