Szechuan House Restaurant
After having Szechuan food at Highgate Chinese Restaurant a few weeks earlier, I was back in the mood for some more Szechuan cuisine so I dropped by Szechuan House Restaurant on Imperial for some take-out.
The Szechuan Style Fried Green Beans with Minced Pork ($11.95) weren’t too crunchy but they were tasty nonetheless.
The Stir Fried Sliced Lamb with Cumin ($13.95) had plenty of thinly sliced lamb and had a good spicy kick to it. Cumin has a strong and distinctive earthy aroma to it but, in the beginning, I didn’t notice it too much. After a couple of servings, however, I was a bit overwhelmed with the cumulative effects of the cumin… my own fault really… I should have stopped after the third helping, lol.
Shanghai Chow Mein ($9.95) isn’t a spicy dish at all so it works great at moderating the spice level of the other Szechuan dishes. It’s always good to have some type of non-spicy carb dish when eating spicy food (works great to sop up all the sauce too).
This restaurant takes cash or debit and was empty when I came by to pick up my food. From the look of the other take-out orders waiting at the counter, they must do a brisk amount of to-go orders. I was also a bit surprised that the guy refused my tip when I was paying.
