Chinese

This Chinatown eatery specializes in Szechuan dishes that might be the hottest in Chicago. Most items on the menu come with an excruciatingly high spice level, like the Ma Po Tofu, recommended by both the chef and Anthony Bourdain. If hot and spicy isn't your jam, don't worry, Sze Chuan has mild meat and vegetable dishes, plus familiar appetizers like egg rolls, steamed buns, and beef satay.
