Sichuan and Northern Chinese cuisines are known to be fiery and mouth-numbing and many of the delicious dishes at Danny Bowien’s Mission Chinese Food support that reputation. Among the hottest dishes on the menu are the chicken wings — prepared as Chongqing-style dry fried chicken — which are tossed with a Sichuan peppercorn-based spice mixture and buried in an abundance of red peppers.
