What's Cooking?

you should make this dish yourself (dunno if it is hard to make) to save you from so much disappointment :(


You should try Spicy King in vista for the saliva chicken. It's not as close as Ba Ren but pretty close.


I haven't been here in years. Too bad about the service, though I would have loved to see his face after you called him a "da fei zhu". heehee


Hi Kat - I do:

Except that after working a long day and the weather being super hot...the last thing I want to do is cook....and be toiling in a hot kitchen.

Hi TFD - I do have to revisit since the asst chef from Ba Ren is there.

Hi Kirbie - Man was that guy a punk....not jerk, punk.


What does "da fei zhu" translate to in English? Is it something like, "fat pig"? The jerk deserved it.

Too bad about the food but good writing, as usual.

J.S. @ Sun Diego Eats

Have you ever tried ordering from them and then 'doctoring' it a bit at home? I do this sometimes to food I order from Chinese restaurants. But not sure it would work for these particular dishes...


Hi alnc - Add "big" to the front of that and you'd have it!

I have JS. Chinkiang Vinegar, sugar, sesame doesn't work real well with these type of dishes. Good idea though!


Hey Kirk, unrelated to Sichuan liang mian but have you given Spicy House another visit lately? They've undergone three changes in ownership since my last visit and apparently it's now approved by a couple of Sichuanese friends of mine. I've been meaning to check it out and was wondering if you've been there lately. So sorry about the terrible service and food at Spicy City :\


Wow Jinxi - When I last visited just about a year ago, Spicy House was already on their third set of owners.....I'm wondering what the score is now? Thanks for the heads-up....I may just take my chances and revisit soon!


ah understandable...take care!
