You want great Sichuan? Then take the train (take the train) to Flushing and look no further than Spicy and Tasty.

yum - looks delicious.
one of the organizations i work with is not far from there - i'll need to try and schedule a meeting around lunch time there soon.

i missed yetserday's tasters choice - i just have to add i love cilantro.
it is used a lot in indian and caribbean cooking.
i sub it for parsley in a lot of other recipes too where i can get away with it.

I haven't tried and it's on my list. I would like to chime in with my favorites from the same neighborhood, Szechuan Gourmet at 135-15 37th Avenue, that's next to the violin shop, down the block from Happy Buddha (also great though in a not-hot fake-meat sort of way), and across the street from very good dim sum. I love the hot and spicy cellophane noodle soup, and many other dishes. If you don't care about looks (or trash bags on the stairs, the Golden Mall Chengdu or noodle pulling or really many other stalls (it's a food court of food from all over china) is remarkable.

I love any Flushing-based restaurant that serves a really good salt-and-pepper squid.

(that dish is hard to find made as well anywhere else)
