Dry chili soft shell crab at the Double Li restaurant

Amiable owner Mr. Li used to guide diners through specials written on the wall in Chinese only, but now those have made it onto the English-language menu, adding to the many fantastic Szechuan options available for those looking to get out of a fried-rice rut. Both the fish with cabbage in chili oil and the mapo tofu pack plenty of earthy spice via a fistful of Szechuan peppercorns. To balance the heat, order the sugar-cured housemade bacon wok-tossed with snow peas, leeks and hefty slices of ginger. And if soft-shell or blue crabs are on offer, get them.
