1. Chinese food is best eaten family-style. Sharing a number of dishes allows you to balance between spicy and non-spicy items, vegetables and meat, and flavor profiles. Of course, sharing may not be possible due to dietary restrictions or vastly differing tastes, in which case some dishes work better as single-person entrees than others. For example, while one of my favorite dishes is the spicy fresh fish, it's too spicy for me to eat as a single-person entree. Some of our customers have - hats off to them!
2. While Szechuan food is know for being numbingly spicy, not every dish is spicy. Accordingly, it's always good to mix it up - eating food that is uniformly numbingly spicy means that you lose the ability to taste anything after the first few bites, and what's the point of good food if you can't taste it?
Since I'm quite a geek, I've put together the following flowchart to help newer customers navigate our menu. Of course, this non-exhaustive; just a place to start if you aren't sure of what to order!
