A Meal at Szechuan Gourmet: Your Weekend Eating Assignment

I have extolled the virtues of Szechuan Gourmet before, but after having another extraordinary meal there yesterday, I must implore you all over again to eat there this weekend. You do not have to go to Flushing to eat great Szechuan food and you can do better than the quite good food served at the various Grand Sichuan branches around Manhattan. Yesterday a friend and I shared three dishes, each one better than the last:

Szechuan Pork Dumpling with Roasted Chili Soy

Double Cooked Sliced Pork Belly with Chili Leeks

Crispy Lamb Filets with Chili Cumin

The crispy lamb might have been the best in show, but I would gladly go back any time for any of these dishes.
