X.O. Taste Restaurant Review

: Noisy and flamboyant, this Falls Church eatery really wins a place in people’s hearts: its roast duck is crispy and hot, its ma po tofu wows the palate, and other offerings range from the usual Hunan shrimp to the more esoteric deep-fried spicy frog. As you can see, the menu doubles down on authentic dishes, though you’ll find some of the more Americanized fare, such as moo goo gai pan and orange beef. Staff will eagerly suggest dishes, and if you are really into the exotic, you’ll find plenty in that vein---scan the section marked "Gourmet Dish" for steamed pig’s kidney and liver and marinated intestines.
