Start with snacks or starters that alternate between crispy, chewy, spicy, mild and sticky. Then, the spice level slowly builds throughout the main courses. Soup is often served throughout the meal to offset or add to “the crescendo of seasonings.” Dishes here are served family style as they become ready.
