Bowls of Sichuan-style fish are so commonly bristling with chile peppers that the mild-mannered countenance of our Chengdu fish filet with pickled vegetables ($18.95) gave us pause. Tender flounder, sour greens, limpid noodles — and, lurking below, a hit squad of minced chiles — set us aright. Also shown, an old favorite in a superb rendition: smoked pork with garlic leaf ($13.95). For more photos from this lunch and from a return visit soon after, see the EIT page on Facebook.
