Szechuan Restaurant - Bend Oregon
Szechuan RestaurantSzechuan Restaurant has been in my own personal dog house since September of 2006 when we fell ill due to some bad Hot n Sour soup. That is until recently when I gave them another go. I was sitting at home watching some football and getting hungry. I didn't want pizza but who else delivers?
I thought about Bend Take Out who delivers from a bunch of restaurants but I'd rather have hot food in a timely manner. So I thought that I should take a risk on Szechuan again. I placed my order and within 25 minutes I had a hot meal at my door.
I ordered enough to have left overs or some food for the wife when she got home. When I used to go to Szechuan for lunch I would always get either the Mandarin Chicken or Broccoli Beef. Since Mandarin Chicken is like the Big Mac of Asian cuisine I went with the Broccoli Beef.
When ordering from Szechuan I will usually get an item off the Lil' Friends portion of the menu like the BBQ Pork or sweet and sour prawns. I don't want an entire meal, just the Lil' Friends portion size. Saves a couple of bucks. I also get the Veggie Egg Rolls and Hot and Sour Soup.
Everything was great! I love taking the egg rolls and dipping them in the hot mustard and then into the provided sweet and sour. It makes for a great hot, sweet, sour combo. The hot and sour soup was amazing just like I remembered it and I'm pleased to report that there were not any negative side effects after.
On a side note, thanks to the Anonymous Commentor who sent in the following on my last Szechuan review:
"Jerkstore? Are you kidding me. Szechuan is great and a good deal. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it isn't good. Maybe your not meant for Hot & Sour soup? I've had it a ton of times with none of the disgustingly described symptoms, as have my family."
It is because of your timely comment that I remembered I had this photo and wanted to write a second review of Szechuan Restaurant. Most of the time my commentors disagree with me and that's fine. You're wrong and I'm right. But in this case, you have a valid point. Before my bad experience, I had visited Szechuan many, many times. But one bad experience can really put a damper on a restaurant in my opinion.
Anyway, Szechuan, you have won me back and I'll be coming in for the lunch specials soon and often as well as taking advantage of delivery.
