Excellent Sichuan Food - Upper East Side

We have written about Wu Liang Ye before, the Lexington Ave. location.

Last Friday, we walked to the 86th Street & 3rd Avenue location for a meal at the Wu Liang Ye, 3rd ... it is up-town and I was fearful that the meal would not be as good as the mid-town location ...

Good news ... the dishes we ordered were very competently prepared in the Chinese manner ...

we started with three dishes ... Poached razor clams with Sichuan peppercorn and scallion vinaigrette ... Ox tongue and tripe with roasted chili and peanut vinaigrette .. Jelly fish julienne with scallion pesto ... yummy, yummy, yummy! ... the three dishes can be ordered as a combination for $20.95 ... worth every penny ... the sauces were delicious with the right strength of chili and green scallion ...

next ... we ate an order of Chengdu wonton with Sichuan peppercorn vinaigrette ... swallowing clouds! $4.95 ...

finally, we ate sauteed spinach with garlic $8.95 ... so very delicate ... with a bowl of steamed rice ...

a perfect meal ...

I had a glass of Wu-Liang-Ye, a colorless grain alcohol ... similar to vodka ... taste of lemon and lichi ... drink chilled ... can be considered as their house wine ... very smooth with the hot Sichuan peppercorns ... $6.00 with the meal ...

very good service, too ... I will be back to try other dishes.

And we got in some exercise ... walking twenty blocks each way on a Friday evening ...

215 East 86th Street, 212-534-6032
