Hunan Slurp Restaurant Review

About the restaurant & décor: Take note! Dining at Hunan Slurp is not for the faint of heart. Unless you absolutely crave and adore super-fiery cuisine, you might want to ask your server to tone down the heat in some of the dishes. In a long room that gets very noisy due to its hard surfaces and tables set close to each other, the cooking is every bit as loud.

Likes: The sleekly designed room.
Dislikes: Unexpected heat can overpower the taste of the dishes.

Food & Drinks: The organic cucumber, a smashed salad with garlic vinaigrette, might actually be the coolest item on the menu and certainly one of the most flavorful non-noodle options. It’s also quite beautiful. Other possibilities, like the mifens (Hunan rice noodles), a Hunan Slurp specialty served family-style, can require a quick glass of milk to ease the burn unless you request them toned down. If you do, you’ll discover an exciting blend of Hunan tastes, such as the umami-rich broth mixed with wok-fried fish in a pot of vegetables, pork and scallions. A whole steamed fish with chopped chili sauce is delicious, but do ask to adjust the spice level. Seasonal specials can include crab, prawns, octopus and tofu. A traditional sweet soup of mung bean, pearl barley and rock sugar provides a cooling finish. Hunan Slurp offers a limited selection of wine and beer, and a corkage fee applies if you bring your own bottle. If possible, request to be seated across from the open kitchen — the chefs are magicians with their array of sauces.
