Chinese: Lovers of Asian cuisine delight in this Chinese restaurant in the International District that opened in 1992. Sichuanese cuisine is known for its spiciness and diversity of fresh ingredients. Flavors come from "three peppers: pepper, chili and peppercorn," and the beauty of Sichuan dishes lies in its spicy spectrum. The eatery, "Old Szechuan Restaurant" in Chinese, was founded by Chef Kao Hsiao-Suna, who is said to have introduced the "Mala Huoguo" - "Hot and Spicy Hotpot" to the United States. Popular dishes include Mapo Tofu ("Pocked Face Grandmother Bean Curd"), Huiguo Rou ("Twice-Cooked Pork") and Liang Fen (or "Cold Noodles").
