Fraser Street Chinese Food - Restaurant 1

Two Fraser Street Chinese restaurants were discovered this weekend.

The first one came to somerville kitchen for a jardin picnic and it is called Grand View Szechuan.

I heard raving reviews about this restaurant from a neighbour. They deliver for free and it was that kind of night.

Well, the food did not violate any of my principles for good Chinese food.

The Vegetarian Mu Shu was excellent.

Vegetables were varied and don't expect me to tell you what they were. But they were nicely cooked and nicely thickened that you'd think there is meat in them.

The restaurant has a large selection of vegetarian dishes. 

The Pan Fried Assorted Vegetables with Black Bean Sauce felt like they were missing the black bean sauce.

On the other hand, the Fried Tofu & Eggplant in Hot Garlic Sauce was delicious.

I am not sure what is the base of the sauce. It is red, spicy, and the fried tofu, despite soaked in sauce, kept a nice texture.

Maybe I should have stuck to vegetarian. The Mongolian Beef was mediocre.

But the menu is large and many other meat dishes have potential for the next order, which I am definite will happen.
