This Chinese Restaurant is Changing the Game on Long Island

Spicy Home Tasty has taken over the Chinese food scene on Long Island since they first opened their doors in 2017. Owner Yuling Chou and partner, Chef Xian Chun Du, curated a menu which offers an array of traditional Chinese dishes, including some Chinese-American standards, but mainly steers towards traditional Sichuan cooking. Sichuan or as some may know as Szechuan cuisine, originated in Sichuan, a Southwestern Province of China. Their main ingredients are mostly garlic, chili peppers and peppercorn creating dishes filled with bold, bright

flavors. 

 

 

At Spicy Home Tasty, guests can enjoy the true traditional style of Sichuan cooking. The menu begins with cold and hot appetizers ranging from a fan favorite like their wontons in chili oil (hand made right in-house) to their dan dan noodles with minced pork, mixed and served table side. We suggest trying one of their dry pots also known as GānGuō, which typically comes served with your choice of protein, potatoes, veggies and all the spices you can think of over a hot flame. Perfect for sharing, dry pots are known for their bold flavors and are packed with spicy, tingling tastes that keep you coming back for more. 

 

 

Spicy Home Tasty also offers a selection of authentic noodles from their house spicy noodles to more traditional crystal noodles (cellophane noodles) with pork intestine. Other standouts are their tea smoked duck, dry pepper chicken, orange beef and crispy fish in sweet and sour sauce. Be sure to reserve a table on the weekends. The space is casual with just about fifteen tables, but the decor is somewhat modern with touches of muted gray color schemes, upholstered banquet seating, and crystal accents. Takeout is also available, but be sure to call ahead of time during the busy weekend dinner hours.
