Little Pepper
Queens
Ironically situated across from the Bland Houses projects, Little Pepper is an ideal destination restaurant for foodies. The drab, Spartan furnishings focus all attention on the stunning, spicy Szechuan fare. The braised sliced fish comes simmered in a radiating scarlet broth reminiscent of a Thai curry. Dan dan noodles take on new life here, buoyed with fiery minced pork. Dishes often include a remarkable range of flavors: tender lamb, lathered in a cumin hot and spicy sauce has an almost Middle Eastern accent, while a mild steamed cauliflower with smoked pork dish has a Vietnamese delicacy. Come prepared for the Szechuan pepper: Even simple appetizers like the sliced beef blister with firecracker heat.
