Before we discovered Grace Garden, our go-to place for Chinese food was Szechuan House, mostly because they deliver, even though we live almost 4 miles south of the restaurant. But the food is probably the best in the vicinity, and they even have a small section of the menu dedicated to authentic Chinese dishes, several of which involve "intestines." Haven't tried any of those, and not sure if I ever will.
After cooking bacon in the heat last weekend, the last thing we wanted to do was cook. Nor did we want to go out to eat. Szechuan House to the rescue! We ordered our usual quart of won ton soup (a whopping $2.50) and two spring rolls to start. Somehow the spring rolls are ALWAYS hot and crispy when they get to the house. The won ton is sometimes more wan than anything, but this time it was bold and flavorful, with at least six whole pork-filled won ton noodles in a rich broth.
This time we ordered two dishes we had not yet tried at Szechuan House: beef lo mein, and shrimp in sesame sauce.
The lo mein was a bit on the bland side, but it was miraculously non-greasy.
