Spicy Tingly Szechuan

Szechuan food is mouthburning and mouthwateringly great! Its numbing, tingly spice is found in innocuous-sounding dishes like Water-Boiled Fish and Fried Chicken Cubes that set your mouth on fire. Addictive dishes like Strange Flavor Chicken and Dan Dan noodles sparkle with a combination of spicy, salty, sour, and sweet. Our favorite Szechuan restaurant recently closed, we think this new find is even better.
Join us at Best Szechwan for a fiery and delicious lunch.

When: Sunday, December 10 at 1pm
Where: Best Szechwan Chili & Seafood, 230 N. Garfield Ave., #12, Monterey Park, 91754
Directions: Take 10 Fwy east, past downtown LA. Exit on Garfield Avenue toward Monterey Park, heading south from the freeway. Drive .6 mi to a strip mall at 230 N. Garfield, on your left. Restaurant is in far right corner. Lot parking available.
