This no-frills Chinese restaurant breaks from the Cantonese fare usually on offer with a menu of Sichuan cuisine: spicy, tangy, tongue-numbing dishes from the province in southwestern China. Don't miss the dan dan noodles with minced pork, the cucumber salad, and the crispy lamb fillets with roasted chile and cumin. (And be sure to have a glass of water and a bowl of rice on hand to quench the fire.)
