Please add to the discussion of Sichuan/Chongqing noodles.
- Lock Chun in Santa Clara has an untranslated Korean menu
- Bing’s Dumplings (Fremont) Taiwanese with hand-pulled noodles
- Village Garden in Milpitas has closed, and will be replaced by a place called “MY BBQ.”
- I’ve reclassified Albany’s V Pot as Sichuan hot pot. They also have various Sichuan noodles.
- King Kee in Union Square just opened. Hoodline’s report in December said it was going to be a Cantonese place, and its opening menu also has several Sichuan items, including the first appearance of “Chongqing Xiaomian” at a restaurant doing double duty as Cantonese/Hong Kong and Sichuan. Portions of Sichuan items are on Yelp. The baby corn in one of their spicy lunch specials and the zucchini kung pao chicken aren’t enticing me. How do they handle both cuisines? Either way, between this and Little Sheep, it’s showing there’s a market for foods beyond the Cheesecake Factory in Union Square.
