Best of Boston

2012 BEST Chinese Restaurant, South

Sichuan Gourmet

It may look like any other suburban strip mall Chinese joint, but don’t let looks deceive you: The kung pao chicken, ma po tofu, and Chengdu spicy dumplings here are better than many of Chinatown’s offerings. Add in an order of double-cooked bacon and tender beef with hot green pepper, and prepare to be blown away.
