Famous Sichuan

Chong qing chicken, Famous Sichuan

Before the Sichuan explosion of the 2010's, there was Famous Sichuan, a small, dark, modest spot in Chinatown serving up solid versions of Sichuan standards. One of our favorites, the Chong Qing chicken, comes with a welcome heaping of garlic, and the dry sautéed shredded potatoes, another mainstay, riff on the usual version by adding deep-fried crunch. While the wontons in red oil were just ok, the fried vegetable dumplings --- hardly a Sichuan specialty -- stand with the best in town.
