Arundinaria Nitida - A very lovely species from N.W. Szechuan.
Szechuan outpost Lucky Strike (12306 SE Powell Blvd) brings spicy flavors (the chiles are imported from China) that are sure to impress and have you begging for water.
Dumplings are served a la carte and seasoned in the culinary traditions of Hunan, Mandarin and Szechuan cuisine.
The menu is fairly extensive, with more than 200 items, including a number of Hunan and Szechuan specialties.
If you like it hot, be sure to order off the "Szechuan Heaven" menu, featuring spicy fare such as sauteed beef short ribs with triple chili pepper and spicy hot seafood soup pot.
What won it the top honor is the fact that it serves authentic Szechuan dishes, even going so far as to make its own noodles.
Although the restaurant specializes in hosting weddings, parties and other large functions in its banquet rooms, it also offers an extensive menu of Hunanese, Szechuan and Mandarin specialties to the walk-in diner.
Experienced chefs, directly from China, prepare authentic Hunan, Szechuan and Mandarin food.
Menu selections include both Mandarin and Szechuan dishes, such as chicken with broccoli, fried crab rangoon, beef with broccoli, sesame chicken, shrimp lo mein, sweet and sour shrimp, and spring rolls for your side dish.
Don't miss the signature Szechuan green beans, crispy-fried with hot peppers.
