Since I really have no idea what ingredients were in most of our dishes, this will mainly be a photo essay.
First we got the Tan Tan noodles. They were coated in a light but flavorful chile oil. Not too spicy. This was both of our favorite dish.Next we got the crispy garlic shrimp. They were fried and coated in a panko breadcrumband jalapeño coating, with extra for topping. I've never had shrimp served in this dry manner, but it was delicious.
Next we got a scallion pancake that was rolled with thinly sliced beef and cucumbers. Like a Sichuan burrito, this was perfect to dip in all of the different sauces from our other dishes.
There are a lot of great options in Chinatown. We also tried to go to R&G Lounge and Great Eastern - both of which are Cantonese. The crowds were too much! Here is a shot just trying to get in the door at Great Eastern!
Hope you all had a lovely holiday! We are off to the Mission District today!
