FON and Philadelphia Inquirer food critic Craig LaBan turned me on to Sakura Mandarin. Their diced chicken with chili pepper is a regular hit on the Nachojawn lunch circuit.
I originally found it when looking for a replacement for Szechuan Tasty House’s Three Pepper Chicken. They’ve got superior scallion pancakes on the menu too.
For $8 at lunch with soup, it’s tough to beat.
