Hot, Spicy & Homestyle - Little Szechuan

Last night I took my family, visiting from out of town, to Little Szechuan, one of my favorite Chinese places in Atlanta. The place is never packed and it's a comfy spot to have some great, reasonably priced Chinese food. The place is tucked into a small strip mall at the corner of Shallowford Road and Buford Highway. The leftovers make great lunches and dinners - somehow we always end up with a LOT of food here! At the end of the meal customers are given orange slices to clear the palate - a nice touch.

Complimentary nibbles served upon arrival - the pickles and marinated bean sprouts have a nice kick.

Hot & Spicy seafood soup and salt & pepper calamari (appetizer portion - with some already eaten!)

Vegetable dumplings. These were a special of the day but I think the chef is considering adding them to the regular menu. They were a big hit with my grandmother since she doesn't eat meat out and has never before been able to order dumplings at a restaurant.

Fried red snapper with hot & spicy sauce.

Sesame chicken (left) and kung pao sole - very spicy and also so tasty.

Stir-fried string beans.

Garlic eggplant - yum!
