Useful information


This corner gem proves that New York City is ablaze with Sichuan spots. Discover you’re in for a treat from the moment peanuts—coated with extra sweet and spicy chili powder—arrive at your paper-covered table.

The uninitiated come for the crab Rangoon and General Tso’s chicken, but those in the know are here for the likes of Sichuan-style crispy eggplant, which is not the least bit greasy and particularly unique, thanks to their creamy center and glass-like crust. Thin shavings of intensely smoked pork with garlic leaf is even better than what tea-smoked duck would taste like if made with bacon. The “tears in eyes” bean jelly salad may not induce actual tears, but it’s stocked with chillies, seeds, peanuts and is absolutely worth ordering.
