Good Gotta Eat!! Food…Han Dynasty, Philadelphia…A little tasting here or there in the City of Brotherly Love!! Sichuan Cuisine


We went for a little bit of a more upscale Chinese dining….it is still a very casual place…Han Dynasty is located at 3711 Market St. in Philadephia.  The telephone is 215-222-3711.  Website?


The cuisine at Han Dynasty is known as Sichuan.  “Sichuan” , previously known as Szechwan, is a province in the West of the Southern Central Region of China.

This restaurant serves food family style.  It is perfect for sharing and they do open for lunch and dinner.

You can eat at the bar or sit at the tables. It does get crowded.  Our server was CJ and he was great with his recommendations.

Han Dynasty packs a lot of heat in its dishes.  The level of heat for each one is on the menu.  But, if you want a little milder or hotter, don’t be afraid to ask because they will be more than happy to oblige.

And this is what we ordered:

The Dumplings in Chili Oil were spicy and perfect for an appetizer.


I thought this particular entree had tofu, but I am not sure if they forgot and gave me an extra order of Stir Fried Lamb in Hoisin and Oyster Sauce.  It was good and I did ask for a number 5 in the heat level.


The Pork Long Hot Pepper Style were stir fried and included shredded long hot peppers.  Full heat!!


CJ told us that the Salt & Pepper Shrimp were very good.  We did try them and they were very light and had just the right amount of salt, pepper, and heat.


And, I loved this vegetarian dish of Bok Choy with Black Mushrooms!!


No dessert was necessary, just a long walk along the streets of University City.

Please note that if you do have a gluten diet they will be able to modify some of the dishes.

Talk to you later.
