Spicy and sour fern starch noodles
Angie Quebedeaux
For cold appetizers, a popular choice is the spicy and sour fern starch noodles ($6.99). It looks like squid-ink noodles and is topped with chiles, sesame seeds and their signature sour sauce. For hot appetizers, you can’t go wrong with the fried Chinese doughnuts ($6.99), fried milk custard ($6.99) or fried chicken wings ($8.99). The fried Chinese doughnuts are like unsweetened churros and are great to dunk in the soup broth.  The signature dish here is a sauerkraut fish. Trust us when we say this rich, sour, oily, velvety and spicy dish is nothing short of spectacular. The fish is sourced from Dutchboy Farm in Idaho where it is flown in live and kept in a tank until it's ready to be cooked. The broth is full of ribbons of pickled mustard greens, which is their version of sauerkraut. There's also loads of ginger, dried chilies and Szechuan peppercorns. Delicious fresh chunks of fish or beef rise to the top of the broth. The fish is fresh, firm, and holds together when plucked out with chopsticks.To order, first, choose the flavor of the soup: the classic spicy sour, spicy or vine pepper numb. Next, you choose a size (small, medium or large) and your main ingredient: tilapia, largemouth bass, Wagyu beef or a combination of tilapia/wagyu beef.
