T&L Names Lao Sze Chaun One of the Best Chinese Restaurants in the US

Image from T&L
Either Tony Hu has one of the best PR machines in the food industry or he makes some damn good food.  It's probably the latter, but in all honesty probably a little bit of both.  Regardless, Lao Sze Chaun (2172 S. Archer) is damn good and damn close to us.  Here is what Travel & Leisure has to say:
Awards continue to rack up for Lao Sze Chuan, one of the first area Chinese restaurants to earn three forks from the Chicago Tribune, and a designated “Bib Gourmand” in the 2012 and 2013 Michelin Guide. Owner Tony Hu, dubbed the Mayor of Chinatown, has seven Chinese restaurants, with four more slated to open by the end of this year. Yet people continue to wait in line for a table at this Sichuan spot, known for its extraordinary spiciness and fearless dishes like sour pickle and pork stomach soup and Peking-style duck tongue (milder options are also available).

LaoCzeChuan is just an OK one.

A lot of better options in NYC and LA than this one in term of SzeChuan food.
