After Googling and Yelping for Szechuan restaurants in the Seattle area, I found good reviews for a relatively new, family owned Chinese restaurant in Bellevue, called Spiced. We had been there for lunch today. It is located in a strip mall, across from the Crossroads mall. When we got there at 12:30 pm, we were the first ones and wondered about the food. But within the next 10 minutes the place was buzzing with plenty of Asians, who looked like regulars. That's a good sign, A said.
The decor was unadorned and it appeared to be a bright and shiny casual lunching/dining spot.
We ordered the Green Onion Pancake to start with. With the hot pepper sauce on the side, it was absolutely toothsome.
The waiter recommended their Tofu with hot pepper in dried pot for the main course. Basically, it is a dry cooked tofu hot pot. The hot pot contains fried tofu, sprouted mung, red chillies, peppercorns and celeries cooked in a Szechuan sauce.
