Portland has many excellent Thai and Japanese restaurants but has been trailing the major metro areas of the country in authentic Chinese fare. At last, real Sichuan cooking is available in Portland. My wife and I have eaten here twice and had the pork buns both times (excellent), dumplings, the green beans and pork, the pork chef special (very thinly sliced flavorful pork), and the fish dish served in a wonderful spicy broth. The fish is delicate but the texture is slimy, so people not familiar with real Sichuan cooking might not like that. I loved it and was sopping up the interesting broth. The flavors of this cooking style combine chili oil, Chinese peppercorns, and other ingredients in producing wonderful subtle flavors. All in all, everything we've had here so far has been on par with the best we've had in New York and San Francisco. A welcome addition to Portland!
