Grand Sichuan House Restaurant Review

: The streets of Brooklyn (and the other outer boroughs, for that matter) are lined with Chinese restaurants, many of which are of questionable value to the diner. But this Bay Ridge establishment, situated among the other ethnic eateries that line Fifth Avenue, should be no mystery: the Sichuan cuisine is no-frills and memorable. The water-cooked fish may not sound like much, but the large metal bowl pooling hot peppers, white fish, silky tofu and vegetables (ladled into smaller bowls) is worth the price of admission (if there were one). Also hits are the aromatic pumpkin soup; tender, thinly sliced beef tongue and tendon in an almost overpowering pepper sauce; and shredded duck with sliced spring ginger. Pair it all with Chinese beer (some of the food is so spicy, you may consume several bottles).
