DanDan Noodles in Toronto

vivsuen | Aug 31, 2006 01:50 PM

Hi all,

DanDan Noodles -- silky hand-pulled wheat noodles bathed in a spicy peanut sauce, garnished with scallions and sometimes minced pork, tiny shreds of preserved vegetables adding crunch and balance. This is what I'm craving right now. I blame my father -- on a recent visit to Vancouver he took me to Golden Great Wall Restaurant on Broadway and they have without question the best dan dan noodles I've ever had in my life.

Now I'm craving them something fierce.

So, help me out here, Chowhounds! Where in Toronto can I get really great dan dan noodles? I've tried Jing Peking and was really disappointed: stringy meat clearly intended for a stir-fry, spicy-yet-flavourless sauce, huge lumps of vegetables and a tendency to congeal unappealingly upon cooling. I guess it was kind of like fast food dan dan noodles, which is not what I'm jonesing for.

If I lived in Vancouver, I would be at Golden Great Wall once a week for a bowl of dan dan noodles and a serving of steamed pork dumplings. Basic, traditional Szechuan food, but the best specimens of both dishes that I've had -- even compared to places in Hong Kong!
