Mala Sichuan Bistro

Despite its attentive service and stellar reputation, we had an uneven experience at Mala Sichuan on Westheimer; the kitchen seemed to be having an off night. Though we savored our Dry Pot Fish Filet done up with vegetables, Sichuan peppercorns, and lotus root, our crab and asparagus soup lacked flavor, with nary a hint of either ingredient—mostly just egg white. The Red Oil Dumplings, floating in sweet chile oil, spiced things up, but the dumplings themselves were woefully undercooked.
