As the tongue-numbing spices of Sichuan cuisine become more and more popular, this family-owned hot spot is an Atlanta standout that will soon expand with Gu's Dumplings in the Krog Street Market. Chef Yiquan Gu can bring the burn, but he also has a keen eye for textures that range from boiled fish fillet to crisped eggplant. Flat Zhong pork dumplings, robust Chengdu-style cold noodles, ineffably tender cumin lamb, and tea-smoked duck are among his best dishes. Don't miss other gems such as conch in red chili oil, stir-fried crunchy lotus roots, and twice-cooked smoked pork belly with jalapeños
