If you like spicy Sichuan cuisine, you need to visit Mala Sichuan Bistro pronto! Located at 9348 Bellaire Blvd, Mala has a deep menu of inexpensive dishes. The dan dan noodles were some of the best homemade noodles I've ever tasted, and at about $4 were a total bargain. The cumin beef is a total firecracker - absolutely delicious. We also ordered the spicy eggplant, which was one of the best eggplant dishes I've ever tasted. In an area full of great restaurants, you need to add Mala to your route of must-visit suburban Chinatown restaurants.
