Spicy and Tasty
There's no hiding in this brightly lit, red- and gold-accented restaurant in Flushing. The authenticity—and thus, the heat—of Spicy & Tasty's Sichuan cuisine sets it apart from the abundance of other Asian restaurants in the area. Unlike many Westernized versions of Chinese fare, Spicy & Tasty serves dishes such as dan-dan noodles, which are covered in preserved vegetables, chili oil, Sichuan pepper, minced pork, and scallions They also offer a large selection of offal including tripe, kidney, and tendon, each smothered in spicy red chili oil and cooked to order in a number of different preparations.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
