I have what may be a humble request for the sophisticated Chinese food eaters on this board. Where can I go in the San Gabriel Valley (prefer as far west as possible, but recommend away!) to bring home some cool noodle dishes? Not soup dumplings, not noodle soup: chow fun, rice cakes, handshaven noodles, e-fu with crab, that sort of thing. I honestly can't tell from reading earlier postings: even a place with Noodle in its name is mostly known for beef roll!
Along similar humble lines, if it is possible for your recommendations to offer something close to the name as I might encounter it, in Engish, on the menu, I would have a much easier time.
