I'm looking for recommendations for two weekday meals -- one dinner and one lunch -- anywhere in Orange County. Where would I find the best Asian noodles? My favorite styles are thick or chewy noodles, in rich or spicy preparations, such as:
Korean bi bim nyangmyon (buckwheat noodles with spicy red pepper paste)
Thai pad kee mao (drunken noodles)
Shaanxi-style dao xiao mien (knife-shaved noodles)
northern Chinese hand-pulled or hand-cut noodles
Sichuan dan dan mien
Where should I go?
My initial thoughts, scanning the board, included Noodle Avenue in Tustin, but apparently it's closed, and Thai Nakorn for pad kee mao, but I think that noodles are the weak point at its sister restaurant, Lotus of Siam in Las Vegas, so I'm not sure Thai Nakorn is a noodle destination.
Thanks in advance!
