Yes, when Lucky Strike was on 122nd and Powell it was Fantastic. The Ma Po Doufu and Beef soup were hot but also complex and deeply flavorful. I went to the Hawthorne location and it quickly went from fine to just poor: they not only changed the recipe, they changed the dishes entirely. I asked for the original recipe at the Hawthorne place; they told me there was a new chef and they don't make it that way any more. I won't go back. Taste of Sichuan in Beaverton is ok, but their Mapo doufu isn't up to Lucky Strike's original version. Their xiaolong bao are ok, as is their jellyfish and doufu and peanut salads

Thanks. I emailed the distributor (in NY), but will take the bottle to my local liquor store and see if they'll order it.

Is there any place to buy Chinese liquor in Portland? I am looking for Beijing's sorghum liquor, Er Guo Tou. I have found it in liquor stores in NY and SF, but no luck here.

Thanks.
