The Han Dynasty in University City serves two main purposes - a place to get some of the best Sichuan food around, and a full-on sports bar to watch whatever game happens to be on TV. The dan dan noodles are our favorite thing here, and they’re pretty spicy, but if you’re not into that you can ask them to take down the heat. There are also about 50 other things on the menu that you can enjoy while you watch the Flyers lose their 47th game in a row.
