If someone asks us where they should go for the best, spiciest Szechuan food in the city, we always tell them E Mei. It’s big and spacious inside, with huge booths that can fit up to eight people, and the menu is full of shareable dishes like an entire boiled barramundi fish that can feed at least four people for just $27. It’s also worth noting that they have a great lunch special, too. For just $8, you get a choice of any entree on the menu (we usually go with the garlic shrimp), plus soup and fried rice.
