Chinese

This hole in the wall in Oakland's Chinatown specializes in seriously spicy Szechuan fare. Expect chili oil, chili peppers, and curry on the meat-centric, family-style menu. The hot pots are definitely a standout, especially the "Murder Style Gangsta Casserole" but vegetarian plates are equally piquant -- the vegetarian casserole isn't described as "Numbing" for no reason.
