This week, Jonathan Gold reviews Chengdu Taste, a new restaurant in Alhambra which specializes in the Sichuan cooking of Chengdu, a region defined by their unrestrained use of Sichuan peppercorns. He recommends the boiled fish with green pepper sauce, numb-taste wonton, cold diced rabbit with younger sister’s secret recipe, couple sliced beef in chili sauce, dan dan mian, tofu pudding, rice-flour steamed pork and the ice powder for dessert.
