Szechuan Tasty House

Szechuan Tasty House often looks closed, but it's worth a walk up to the doors to see if they're locked. The no-frills spot serves excellent cuisine, with Sichuan specialties like Ma Po tofu and Chongqing-style la zi ji (translated here as "Chong Qing style deep fried spicy chicken") — cozying up next to Imperial fare such as dong po pork knuckle and homey tomato with egg. Make sure you request the Chinese menu (it comes with an English translation) for the most interesting entrees.
