  1. I have heard from some Baltimore folks that Chef Li is retiring and they are not renewing the lease. The last day open will be early next week (Nov 4 or 5).
  2. This is my reckoning of the dishes that we ordered, most of which were helpfully described by ktmoomau above: shaanxi cold stir noodles, thicker noodles in spicy oil and seasonings cold stir enoki, mild flavored heap of enoki chengdu bean jelly, sleeper hit of slippery gelatinous strips in a spicy sauce (with salty bean paste?) tendon and tripe in spicy sauce, I think there is a similar dish to this at Grace Garden called "triple treasure" spicy trotters, succulent and rich with heavy coating of szechuan peppers and spices pita in lamb soup, which is bits of bread sopped in the soup, and which came with a condiment dish of garlic cloves, pepper paste, and cilantro rouga mo beef "burgers", spiced beef bits in the flat sort of english muffin rolls shaanxi mixed vegetables, a large deep bowl of spicy sauce, heavy on the szechuan peppercorns, with various vegetables (mushrooms, fungus, bamboo, etc) shaanxi flavor fish: large chafing dish with whole fish and sauce with soft tofu iron pot lamb: lamb and turnip chunks in an iron bowl with propane burner Xingjiang Chicken, a platter of mildly seasoned chicken and shaanxi-style thin noodles This was more than plenty for a group of 10, although we ordered doubles of some of the smaller dishes. I don't remember anything being super spicy, although a few of the dishes were strong with the szechuan pepper.
  3. What was the name of the dish of chicken with noodles? I think I have everything else written down...
  4. Ok, right now my list is nelumbo +3 ericandblueboy +1 danielk +2 ktmoomau +1 Which is a total of 11. I plan to call and confirm the reservation tomorrow in the early afternoon, please let me know any changes or corrections by then.
  5. Reservation made for Sunday at 6 pm, 10-12 people, under "Nicky" (or possibly "Micky", neither of which is actually my name but works for this purpose). I will confirm with them on Sunday morning, so please let me know before then if anyone has a change of plans or headcount.
  6. Ok, I have an additional +1. So by my count, that is 10 with a possible additional 3, but with one person who might order separately. My inclination is to call the restaurant later this week with a count range (10-12), and then check back in again with a solid number on Sunday morning. If we end up on the 10 side, we might fit at one of the round tables with a lazy susan (looking at photos of the interior on google)? With a larger number, maybe two of the round tables or some of the smaller tables pushed together (are there only 4-tops or are there some 6-tops?).
  7. I'm +2, with the caveat that one + does not eat pork products and may opt to order separately depending on how hard it is to avoid pork.
  8. I am checking with my possible +'s. Menu link: http://www.xiangourmetmd.com/menu.aspx Some possibilities for discussion: shaanxi cold steamed noodles any of the cold stir mushrooms chengdu bean jelly spicy trotters pita w/ beef and lamb (or beef soup) bbq whole fish or shaanxi flavor fish rouga mo chinese burger shaanxi flavor mixed veg
  9. Why don't we aim for the Sunday the 17th of March, then, say 6:30 pm? or would later be better?
  10. There are three Sundays in the second half of March: March 17 (St Patricks Day), 24, and 31. Any of these work for me - are there any preferred / bad weekends in that set? I might be able to scrounge up another person or two.
