Szechuan Bistro

Szechuan cuisine is known for its heat, but this north-side spot has something for everyone.


Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
The Chinese New Year, which happens this week, not only means gifts, an early spring cleaning, and the gathering of family and friends, but, more important, a celebratory feast!

Safe

Because ‘Safe’ doesn’t play that way, it succeeds.


Action

Rod Lott
Because she has a photographic memory for digits, 11-year-old Mei (newcomer Catherine Chan) was kidnapped and taken from Beijing to Brooklyn to "count" for the Chinese Triads, like a pint-sized accountant who needs no calculator.

The Four

For martial-arts action, it mostly adds up.


Action

Rod Lott
One easy way to review The Four would be to call it a kung-fu X-Men. Hell, director Gordon Chan (The King of Fighters) already has a pair of sequels planned. The big difference, of course, is that this Chinese/Hong Kong film is a period piece set nearly a thousand years ago. Therefore, it’s not interested in adamantium blades, but counterfeit coins.

Gimme a break

Breakfast items vary from country to country but have one thing in common: they are delicious.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
You know you need breakfast before you go on an all-day holiday shopping trip, but all you currently have in your kitchen is ketchup, a can of tuna and some okra because there’s no time to shop for groceries. Bored to tears of the traditional American breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast? Take a trip around the world, treat yourself before noon and get your holiday shopping on.

Noble nosh

The way of the Samurai is to prepare simple but solid sushi that will have you roll back for more.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Never doubt the power of one bad meal. I visited Samurai (1630 NW 23rd St.) when it opened a few years ago and did not feel the need to return. The sushi was not good. I remember the tempura batter being sharp. Like, it hurt my mouth to eat.

Golden god

Take your time picking a menu item you like — there’s plenty to choose from.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Golden Phoenix, 2728 N. Classen Blvd., has a menu that requires time, patience and a spirit of adventure. Not that you have to try Top Snail with Coconut Juice ($8.95), but it’s there if you want to.
