A no-frills Hunan joint serving up the province’s signature dishes in typically fiery fashion, like the steamed fish head caked in chilli peppers or fire wok spicy shrimp that’s given the same treatment. While knocking back Tsingtaos is proven practice when it comes to handling the heat, the restaurant’s super-refreshing (and strong) cucumber martinis also make a great alternative coolant.
