Taster’s Cherce

My friend Alex took me to Grand Sichuan last Friday night, his local Sichuan jernt of cherce. I liked it so much I took Emily the next day. Mostly, so I could have this dish, cucumber salad with scallion sauce, again:

The dressing, from what I could tell, consists of scallion puree, sesame oil, salt and sugar. Man, is it ever tasty. Worth the trip. So is the cumin beef dish (a most curious but delicious experience) and the pork soup dumplings.

If you liked the Cumin Beef you should check out Xi'an Famous Foods if you haven't already. They have a Cumin Lamb burger that's out of this world. They also do hand pulled noodles. They are in Chinatown (both NYC and Flushing) as well as a new location on St. Marks.

Yeah, I know the cumin dish is traditionally served with lamb but I'm not really into lamb. Still, thanks for the tip. I'm so there.
