Here's something from The You Plate Special:
tuddo, a regular and patron whom I've never met but have seen dining in the same restaurants at the same time as me, writes:
I heard from a friend that a favorite Chinese restaurant is considering options, including closure if business doesn't pick up. It is a rare Szechuan (Sichuan) restaurant, rare, that is, for Tacoma and the NW where the blander Cantonese reigns. In Texas, where I used to live, Szechuan suits the spicy pepper-loving crowd to a "T".
Ed reviewed it favorably a month or so after its opening, and its just gotten better. The three sisters who own it have adjusted some of the heat levels to NW tastes and now offer different spice levels like most Thai and Vietnamese places do. Friends who don't like heat on their tongues have enjoyed some of the milder dishes greatly, but I like to crank up the spice level. My friend who travels quite a bit thinks it is the best Chinese restaurant north of SF.
I would sure hate to see this jewel leave Tacoma and take their treats to Bell Town or some place where they will charge twice as much.
