Located far from some of the neighborhood’s more food-centric streets, you’ll notice right away that dumplings and savory pancakes are table staples at this petite halal Chinese spot on Vicente. Come hungry for the seriously huge portions of chili oil and Sichuan pepper-bathed crack fish, which can also be made with beef or lamb. And in a neighborhood full of all-you-can-eat hot pot, here you order Beijing-style hot pot with à la carte items, which is a much more relaxing process overall than trying to cram as much into the broth as you feel justifies the price tag. You’ll probably have to wait at least 20 minutes for a table (bring a hoodie), but you won’t feel pressured to rush once you’re seated.
