Szechuan House, Lutherville

I don't eat a lot of Chinese food. This bothers me because I love it.  I think I am always really nervous about the calories, so I opt for a Chipotle burrito or a burger and fries instead :)


Clockwise: General Tso's Chicken, Lo Mein, Chicken with Eggplant in Garlic Sauce, Rice :)

Yesterday, however, we got some Chinese food from Szechuan House and it was great!  Lucky for us, it's super close to our house and they deliver (I refuse to do carry out because it's literally RIGHT next to my gym and I don't feel like being overwrought with guilt before dinner).

We got Chicken with Eggplant and Garlic Sauce, General Tso's Chicken and Mixed Meat Lo Mein.  We also got Sweet and Sour Soup and Wonton Soup (both $1.25 for a pint!!!!!!!!!!!!)  I am not a fan of these soups in general, so I don't need to comment on them.  If you like them - I heard they were delicious :)

My absolute favorite item was the Chicken with Egglant and Garlic Sauce (Large: $7.50 and it was seriously huge).  The eggplant was almost caramelized and I loved the flavor of the sweet garlic sauce. I would definitely order this again.  In fact, this is probably going to be my go-to dish.

The General Tso's (Large: $8.50) was good - but I couldn't eatmore than three pieces since the sauce was so sweet, however, I did like that there was a good ratio between the breading and chicken.  Dan thought it was excellent and he finished it off happily.

The Lo Mein with mixed meat (beef, chicken and shrimp) (Small: $4.50) was also good, and surprisingly not at all oily.  I usually like more vegetables in my Lo Mein, but since Dan ordered this one - he was thrilled to see so much meat.

The selection at this restaurant is fabulous and so are the prices.  We ordered all this food for 4 people, and there was so much leftover!  If you're in the area - definitely check out the Szechuan House!

they have a great "traditional chinese" menu as well. Also, I love their aromatic squid. it's like calimari with extra zing.

This is a sinnott family hotspot! they use to go for all big occasions. i love the family feeling i get when there, passing plates, swapping cookies and the hot towel is a cherry on top the red bean ice cream

You can't write a proper review of this place unless you actually try the more diverse options on the menu. its the equivalent of reviewing a sushi restaurant by only trying the california roll and the shrimp tempura.
