City Lights of China: Tangy Beef, Szechuan Style

City Lights is a chineese restaurant. I ordered the "Tangy Beef, Szechuan Style". Thin slices of beef in a spicy brown sauce. I got it as a lunch special, so it came with rice (steamed, fried, or brown), soup, and spring roll. The sauce was the highlight of the dish. It is fairly thick and very flavorful, it is also fairly spicy, but not overwhelmingly so. The beef didn't seem to have much taste, and what taste it did have was outshown by the sauce. The combination was good, and I would get it again. I was somewhat expecting it to be like Szechuan beef with shredded meet and carrots, but it wasn't like that at all (I guess that is why it was "Tangy Beef, szechuan style", not "szechuan beef")

I also had the hot and sour soup, which was also very good, lots of stuff floating in it, too much to try and name them all. The spring roll was pretty good as well. It came out so hot that I didn't eat it until I finished everything else and it was still hot.

City Lights of China serves good chineese food and is located at 4820 Bethesda Ave., Betheda, MD. They also have a location in Dupont Circle.
