Small Szechuan restaurant in southern Seattle, along Rainier Ave. Has its own small parking lot. Interior is no frills but clean. Went there for lunch on a Saturday, and the place was almost empty. It did fill up to about half full during the course of our lunch though. For a Chinese restaurant, this place has a relatively small menu. It's mostly Sichuan specialties, and you can also get hotpot. We ordered a bunch of dishes to share, and each one of us got a bowl of noodle. I got the spicy beef noodle which tasted pretty decent. The noodle has a nice bite to it, and the sauce was spicy without being overwhelming. Have to mix it well though, and the noodles at the bottom. As for the dishes the mouth watering chicken, twice-cooked pork and the marinated pig ears were okay. It was the two eggplant dishes (eggplant in garlic sauce appetizer, and egg plant with marinated pork) and the dry pot cauliflower that were the tastiest. The cauliflower was both a little spicy and slightly sour, and the combination of flavors worked out pretty good. Overall bill averaged out to about $25 per person including tax and tip. Considering the food and that we ate a lot (I didn't need to eat dinner afterwards), it was a decent deal.
Chengdu was somewhat difficult to find. The pork bone hotpot broth and Dan Dan noodles was decent. There wasn't much of a protein selection for the hotpot. Basic hotpot and dipping sauce.
After binge-watching Food Ranger's videos, we were in the mood for some Dan Dan noodle plus it was hub's birthday and we have a tradition of eating noodles on birthdays. We found Little Chengdu on yelp and drove here last Saturday. The restaurant has their own private parking lot and can fit about 10 cars. We arrived here at about 7pm and the restaurant was about 80% full. We were seated promptly and were informed that their menu is all online, all we got to do is scan the QR code on our table with our phone to view the menu and order online. The QR code sends information automatically to their computer of our order along with our table number. Note: the online menu would say "show this to your server" after you submit your order, you can ignore that message. Also, if you want to add items to your order after you've submitted, you have to re-scan the QR code so it will be sent as a new order. Our order did take a little while to come to our table and they forgot our rice. There was a lot of takeout traffic. And in about half hour, there was a line forming for dine-in customers. We ordered Chicken Dry Pot, Mapo Tofu, and of course Dan Dan Noodle. You get a ton of food with the Dry Pot, and the Dan Dan Noodle also has generous serving of food. We weren't able to fit more food so we had to doggybag our mapo tofu and some leftovers of the Dry Pot. If you love spicy Szechuan food, do give this place a try. They have a variety of spicy food to serious numbing food. The Dry Pot was slightly numbing on our tongue but not to the point of it being unbearable. It has chicken, veggies, french fries with spices. I didn't like (and was not aware at first) that the chicken still had some bone pieces. The Mapo Tofu has a quite pronounced black bean sauce flavor compared to other 'regular' Mapo Tofu. I really really really liked the Dan Dan Noodle, as a matter of fact I finished about 80% of the bowl myself. Husband used to frequent a Chinese fine-dining restaurant in the east coast for his favorite Dan Dan noodle, so his standard was different than mine. But overall, he really likes the food here and wants to come back. I like the concept of the online ordering even though you're dining in. It eliminates one task that the servers had to do and theoretically they could then focus on refilling water, bringing food to the table, and clearing up dirty dishes. But in practice, the servers still could barely keep up. Several tables of customers who aren't that 'technologically adept' were confused on how to place their order so the servers had to attend to them and train them. Then every 15 minutes there was another customer picking up their takeout order. So they had to grab some kitchen staff to help with clearing up dirty dishes, plus they missed an item when delivering our order, and we had a hard time flagging a server when we needed some water and when it was time to pay. We also ordered their Chengdu Jelly for dessert. I like it quite a lot. It's very refreshing, not too sweet and not too cold. It has peanuts, bits of rice, raisins, clear agar with clear watery soup. When we paid our bill, I told our server how much I liked it and she said that the jelly is a very popular dessert and is usually served in the summertime. One thing that I felt disappointed about is since their default picture on yelp is of the Chinese Pancake/Crepe, I was really hoping I could order one but they actually have never had it on their menu. So I think the picture is a bit misleading.
