In Hunan chili sauce and Sichuan spicy oil. $11.95
Mama Ji’s, San Francisco CA
I can appreciate how Mama Ji’s is NOT afraid of keeping their dishes spicy. I do, however, have a hard time eating an entire bowl of chili oil! Sheesh, that is A LOT of oil for one dish! The fish, if you drained it a little from the oil, was tender and well-cooked though.
These dumplings are kind of amazing! I just wish they give you more since they’re SO delicious. The dumplings have a great shape and the wrapper has a nice bite to it. I always love the combination of salty, sour, hot, spicy, and umami in the dishes from MCF. NOMS!
Salt pickled napa cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, roasted peanut, fresh coriander, and chili oil. $3.50 Mission Chinese Food, San Francisco
Yum! How can you really go wrong with a dish of pickled vegetables. And Mission Chinese knows how to pickle! The napa cabbage was the star of this dish. I could’ve easily had a couple more bowls of this!
Ground Kurobuta pork shoulder, fresh tofu, Szechuan peppercorns, jalapenos, dried red chili pepper, chili oil, green onions, cloves, garnished with chopped cilantro. Mission Chinese Food, San Francisco CA
This has to be one of my favorite Chinese delivery dishes of all time! It’s super spicy with all the jalapenos, dried red chilies, and even more chili oil but the pain in my mouth is worth every delicious bite. I’m thankful that it comes with steamed rice, not only for the cooling effect but also to soak up all that mouth watering sauce.
