K Street Chinese Food

In an unassuming block of K St. NW, in the section mostly identified as the mecca of the lobbyist set, sits a Chinese restaurant that has quickly become one of my favorites.

I first went to Sichuan Pavilion when a Chinese American donor suggested that we meet there for lunch.  Without a reservation on a Friday night, I decided to make a trip because I remembered that the food was delicious and spicy.  After a nearly 20 minute wait, I realized that the amount of food that was ordered wasn’t going to fit the size of the table!

After 2 beers, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, a side order of vegetables and an order of pork fried rice to go, the bill was only $75.  I say that was serious damage!
