On a daring visit about a week ago, we had to try the latest and greatest in Asian food. Friends had recommended it, so why not? My brother from Florida, my world-globetrotting mom, and my up-for-anything S.O. journeyed out to far SE Powell for culinary daring-doo.
This is NOT General Pao’s chicken in cornstarch sauce. This is apparently straight-up vocanic Sichuan cooking. Our table of 4 ordered the Seafood pancake, green beans, plain rice, beef with broccolli , and the plain asian vegetables.
The seafood pancake was delightful. Chock full of briny squid, shrimp and other flavors, and served with a spicy (but not overwhelming ) peppers in oil dipping sauce.
The green beans were smothered in easily avoided red chile peppers. They had a delightful salty clean flavor, balanced with a mouth numbing peppercorn. (I later found in this yelp review, it’s called “huajiao”).
The Beef and Brocolli was listed as “on the safe side” on the menu. Being vegetarian, I tried the broccolli only. Nice, garlicky and bland!
If I had do-overs, I’d take my mother and brother to a ‘safer’ Asian joint, like Om Seafood or Powell Seafood, both also on SE Powell. This is not so great for non-meat eaters, but glad I tried it!
