There are 22 provinces in China.
Shanghai, Beijing, Sichuan, Tianjin....you name it all.
And because of the distinctive geographic and cultural characteristics throughout the continent,
Each of the provinces has its own distinguishing Chinese cuisine.
Hunan dishes, just like Sichuan dishes, are both known for its spiciness.
Besides the popular use of chili, Hunanian also likes to add a little bit of sourish taste to the meal. It's very flavorful and well seasoned.
And Here's Where I Had My Hunan Dishes-
Shredded Potato in Cold Spices 涼拌土豆絲-
The sourish taste prevents the dish to become overpowering spicy.
Very well balanced between the two dominant flavors.

There are many good Chinese restaurants throughout Southern California,
Just stop by any of the Chinese areas (ex. Rowland Heights, Monterey Park, San Gabriel) and I can ascertain you a nice authentic meal.
Well, at least better than most of the national Chinese chain restaurants.
