Noodles in Szechuan are a staple food that can be enjoyed on almost every street. Come for a taste with me at a famous noodle joint here in Chengdu.

Here in Chengdu, I found this local noodle joint that serves up some really specific and unique noodles. The menu was on the wall and you just choose what you want and pay for them upfront.

I ordered 3 bowls:

1) The house minced pork noodles which were full of bean paste, sesame, chilies, and of course the freshest hot boiled noodles cooked to perfection. They had a strong sesame flavour which was really nice!

2) The specialty classic beef noodle soup, the 特使红烧牛肉面. It was a little spicy because this is Szechuan and wow it was nice!

3) The minced beef with red/green pepper noodles. These were SPICY, really SPICY! They were painfully enjoyable. Each bite got hotter and hotter and by the end of the bowl I was so happy but also in a lot of pain, and they also turned out to be my favourite in the end, winning over the sesame flavoured noodles.

4) I also ordered a bowl of steamed egg custard, and the fenzhengrou (Steamed spicy pork in rice flour) which were both really nice, the steamed egg custard was particularly smooth and enjoyable.

Overall this restaurant was a perfect representation of some of the noodles you can find in Szechuan. Although I did not have any DanDan noodles (担担面), I can say that this meal is a perfect introduction to Chinese food and Chinese noodles in general. Spicy, strong hints of bean paste, cilantro, sesame, just beautiful flavours!
