This a posting to two earlier posting. I went to A&J today for lunch and order Dan Dan Noodles for the first time at this place. What I got was not what I remember Dan Dan noodles to be. So I called my freind after I got back, who I had though had ordered Dan Dan noodles which was a dry noodle with a meat sauce with soup on the side. He informed me he ordered Jar Jhang Mein ($5.00 plus a surchange for thick noodles well worth the extra change). So what I remember to be Dan Dan is not. I rememberis the noodle dish with the thick homemade noodles with a thick bean sauce with minced pork, minced plicked vegetables and minced dried shrimp. The noodles and a side dish of soy bean, yubi bean curd and bamboo shoots costed $6.15 plus tip.
I will try the Jar Jhang mein next week and report back. In closing names of dishes change from area to area in China. My best example in this country is Roast beef is cross rib and Prime rib is rib roast. In England Roast beef is Prime rib. So name do change.
