This new incarnation in the former King Tsin spot--long ago, King Tsin was the first Mandarin Chinese restaurant in town--is switching the emphasis to spicy Sichuan cuisine.  With hardwood floors and big windows looking out to the street, this spot has comfortable tables and chairs and a back area for larger parties.  Standouts on the menu include chili oil water dumplings, sesame flat bread, wok-charred kale or cabbage, super-spicy Sichuan boiled fish fillet, sweet and sour crispy fish, braised pork shoulder, Hunan stir-fried shredded pork, lamb in hot pot sauce, and dry-cooked green beans.  Lunch specials feature more common dishes and have included kung pao prawns, eggplant with spicy garlic sauce, and Mongolian beef.

2020 pandemic update:  My favorite take-out from here is dry-cooked green beans with chopped garlic, prawns with sweet & sour spicy sauce flecked with large chopped red peppers, and very good chow fun noodles with barbecued pork.
