CHIReview

Da Mao Jia is a small Chinese restaurant in a strip mall in an industrial section of Bridgeport. The food is Sichuan, with a short menu of tender braised dishes (like ribs and duck tongue), barbecue (including some fantastic pulled rabbit), and small plates like the sweet and spicy handmade noodles and bell dumplings, both of which have a great amount of heat. While the space gets crowded, it’s still typically pretty easy to get a table here. Come with one or two friends (or by yourself) when you’re looking for a quick and delicious meal.
