We have been huge fans of The Sichuan Gourmet in Framingham and though we moved to New Hampshire, we have been driving back 70 miles, just to enjoy their food.
This time we went to the Red Pepper as we heard about it from other foodies and wanted to give it a try. It was mid afternoon, so there was nobody else. We had a royal treatment.
The dan-dan noodles were excellent, though we prefer the thinner noodles at The Sichuan Gourmet (personal preference). The Cumin Flavored Beef with Chili Sauce was outstanding. We had Sauteed Potatoes with Green Pepper, again a delight. It was different, never had it before. Great dish. Diced Fish with pinenuts - hard to find the perfect words for it. Full of flavor, the pinenuts were perfect compliments to the fish. When we learned Chinese cooking we were always told, look for white sauce. That is elegant and can only be used with good quality ingredients. Sure, the fish had white sauce. There was nothing the chef wanted to hide. I also had to have Chow Fun with Beef. Exceptional! We have been savoring the flavors, talking again and again about the different dishes.
The only problem we face: how can we go to both the Red Pepper and to the Sichuan Gourmet when we are in the area? It will be a tough choice every time.
