Chef Brad Spence reviews Dan dan noodles at Han Dynasty
$$ | Chinese
Old City
"I love the sweet and sour flavor of the pork tossed through the thin Chinese noodles at Han Dynasty. Plus, owner Han Chiang is always fun to hang out with!"
Chef Jessie Prawlucki reviews Spicy crispy cucumber at Han Dynasty
$$ | Chinese
Old City
"The mouth-numbing Sichuan peppercorns, and well-balanced combos of Chinese spices make these cucumbers refreshing and addictively spicy. It's the kind of masochistic heat you can't resist."
Chef Rich Landau reviews Pickled chili style tofu at Han Dynasty
$$ | Chinese
Old City
"Considering all the amazing things on the menu at Han Dynasty, their soft tofu with pickled chilies stands out with its perfect balance of heat and flavor. It's kick-ass spicy (as it should be) without being a shallow, one-note burn."
Chef Joe Cicala reviews Garlic sauce-style pork at Han Dynasty
$$ | Chinese
Old City
"This dish is all about the complex and startling contrast of textures: tender shredded pork, crunchy shreds of bamboo shoots, sharp ginger, and the softer snap of wood-ear mushrooms. It's hot and smoky-sweet, otherworldly, and complex. Tip: It should be preceded by the dumplings in chili oil!"
Chef Andy Kitko reviews Dry pepper style fish at Han Dynasty
$$ | Chinese
Old City
"Han has the best Chinese food outside of Chinatown. I love the dry spice preparation, and I think the fish is the best with it. It’s flash-fried and tossed with long hot and dry chili peppers. And they’re not kidding—this stuff is spicy!"
Chef Emilio Mignucci reviews Cold noodles w/ chili oil at Han Dynasty
$$ | Chinese
Old City
"These chilled noodles slicked with fiery chili oil are definitely spicy, but I just can’t stop eating them for some reason. The spice at Han Dynasty has flavor, not just heat."
