(Little Pepper has moved.)
I can't think of any food I would rather have on a cold Christmas day than Little Pepper... I can almost feel these hot peppers warming me up right now. Luckily, it appears to be open (as are most Chinatown restaurants in NYC), so out I go--just as soon as I do some practicing!
Some pictures from a recent outing there by the tireless Jose...
Wontons in red hot oil:
The broth is not as fiery as it looks. In fact, the overall effect is (for me, at least) that of comfort food!
My favorite cold appetizer, chicken in spicy sauce:
My new favorite rice dish here, the fried rice with Sichuan brined vegetable (what the name doesn't mention is the minced pork!):
Enhanced pork (similar to twice-cooked pork):
Braised sliced fish in spicy soup base:
Cauliflower with smoked pork belly:
Shredded pork with dried bean curd:
And, what is probably my favorite dish here, the whole fish with spicy minced pork:
