I happened onto Sichuan Fortune House while looking for parking in downtown Pleasant Hill. That's when I noticed that there was a new restaurant in town. I had the XO Sauce Lamb and some steamed rice, just grabbing some take-out.
I've had a lot of chinese food in my time, and this was absolutely amazing. Far better than 3 Brothers (which was my favorite but which has also fallen in recent years) and vastly better than any of the other local places I've tried.
The flavors were rich and quite spicy, as one expects from Sichuan food, and I for one will be going back again and again. The complimentary pickle and candy peanuts while the waiter took me on a culinary tour of Sichuan province was also a delight.
I can highly recommend the XO Sauce Lamb or Beef, but I will have to wait a few more visits for a more serious review.
