Szechuan Gourmet

I was expecting to be wowed- Bruni, you steered me wrong. Had to wait a bit for a table at lunch time, as expected. The lunch specials are well priced, and I really enjoyed the hot and sour soup. I was so excited for the hyped up pork belly, but it was really not so great. It was mostly fat, and not the good kind. Believe me, I have drooled over pork belly dishes that are 99% porcine fat, this was not so pleasurable. And to make matters worse... they would not sing happy birthday to my friend when I snuck away and asked. Not cool, I was really looking forward to embarrassing him.
