Spicepepper Garden Acton

Spicepepper Garden in Acton is an old favorite of mine so on my way to Bonsai West, I stopped by for lunch today.

The building isn't much to look at, but they have a nice sign.

Fu-Qi Beef and Tendon Slices (7.95). Fuqi feipian 夫妻肺片 means literally "husband and wife lung pieces". The dish was never made with lung pieces, but offal was always involved. Here the tendons and beef are sliced paper thin with a seriously spicy chili oil. This is very hot but also very delicious. There is a big heap of cucumbers hiding underneath, it's all in the presentation.

The menu simply said Chicken in a Fiery Sauce (11.50), so I didn't know what to expect. What arrived was a very familiar dish, Sichuan Gourmet calls it Chicken with Napa Cabbage with Spicy Chili Sauce, and it was similar, down to the garlic and chili powder on top that you mix into the sauce. It had tons of tender chicken resting on Napa Cabbage and Leeks. Not only does it look hot, it's really hot, but also very tasty. I love this dish, so I was really happy when it landed on my table.
