I was recently in the Bay area for a week, so I'll be spending a few posts talking about the great Chinese food I had in the Bay Area. Cupertino has a high Asian population, so naturally, it houses a lot of good Chinese restaurants (not to mention great supermarkets and gift shops!).
Cupertino Village is a small shopping area that consists entirely of Asian restaurants, stores, and markets. We ate several good meals in the area.
Szechuan Era is relatively new, but serves up excellent Sichuan food.
We also got deep fried stinky tofu! To read more about stinky tofu, click here:
No Sichuan meal is complete without the dish that literally translates to "water cooked fish" or "water cooked beef." The anomalous name actually refers to a fiery hot soup-like dish generously seasoned with Sichuan peppers and peppercorns. In Boston, you can get an excellent version of this dish, called "sliced fish, Szechuan style" at Gourmet Dumpling House in Chinatown.
If you are in the Bay area, this place is definitely work checking out!
