There are two sides to the menu at Hunan Bistro. The first is labeled “Oriental cuisine,” and filled with dishes like walnut shrimp and kung pao chicken, and the other is described as “Hunan Sichuan Style.” Which means that you have access to a lot of different Chinese food styles from one tiny strip mall restaurant in Cedar Park. Most of the time, we find ourselves ordering indiscriminately from both sides of the menu. Start with an order of spicy toothpick lamb for the table, then get the Grandma Braised Pork Belly—a bowl of incredibly tender pork belly swimming in a slightly sweet, sticky sauce that goes great with a bowl of hot rice. And before you leave, grab an order of mapo tofu to go—we like it even better the next day.
