The Southern Fish
You’ll need to go deep into the hutongs of Dashilar to find this nine-table Hunanese restaurant, but the hunt is worth it. The décor is minimal and tasteful, looking more like a café specializing in teas than one serving fiery home-style Hunan food. Soft fermented tofu with tomato paste and chili is a solid medium-spice dish, and cauliflower fried with scallions and garlic is even more mild, a wonderfully textural accompaniment to pork belly stir-fried with green and red chilies. On most tables you’ll see the hot and sour fish head, the spicy broth thickened up with mung bean noodles. Whatever dishes you order, tack on rice for everyone; you’ll need it to cut the heat.
