Szechuan Gourmet – The name says it all!

Szechuan Gourmet 朵颐

When we have a yen for Szechuan food, we go to Legend, which is in our neighborhood and is quite good.  I’ve been reading all the praise for Szechuan Gourmet for quite some time, and finally decided to give it a try.  Judging by the dishes we had, the food here beats Legend, though service and ambience are a notch below.  The decor is pretty basic.  We started with dan dan noodles and pork wontons in red sesame oil, both excellent.  The main courses really stood out.  Lamb with cumin, which was dry and overdone when we had it at Legend, was tender, moist and well-spiced here.  The Chengdu prawns, with asparagus, garlic, and pickled peppers, were plump and delicious.  Legend will still be our local fallback, but SG is our new favorite.
