Sometimes, the easiest way to figure out where to go to grab some good eats is by using Yelp. At times you’ll find substantive reviews that would draw you to a restaurant, and if you enjoyed your food, then it was a win-win situation.
Such was the case here. This place was reminiscent of some of the excellent Sichuan places in the San Gabriel Valley, just east of Downtown LA.
We originally wanted to order the Steamed Lamb with Sweet Sticky Rice Pot, but they were of it, along with the beef counterpart.
Food had great flavors, and just spicy enough to create a little sweat and a little numbing sensation (thanks to the cracked Sichuan peppercorns).
This is one place I’d go back the next time I’m in SF, or even Fremont, CA.
