If you're looking to eat Chinese food in LIC, Hupo is the best option we've tried. This Szechuan restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating available, with a long list of cocktails and spicy dishes like mapo tofu with a small handful of ground Szechuan peppercorns on top like a dollop of whipped cream on a sundae. In addition to the mapo and some Happy Hour drinks, we suggest getting the pea shoots here. Despite being covered in a ton of garlic and oil, they stay bright and crunchy.
