dao xiao mian: JTYH, Ma's Islamic Chinese, or elsewhere?

I will be in southern California for two nights next week and plan to be noodling around. Last year, a similar question turned up Ma's Islamic Chinese

though I ended up trying other noodles that trip. Ma's is on my list this time. But I see that, in the last year, JTYH opened and might now be the last word in noodles:

Two nights, two places: would be no problem except I'm in Orange County Monday night (near Ma's) and in LA on Tuesday (nearer JTYH), and JTYH is closed Tuesdays.

Is JTYH amazing enough to be worth a special trip Monday during evening rush-hour from Huntington Beach to Rosemead?

Are there other great dao xiao mian places around LA for Tuesday (anywhere SGV is fine)? Or hand-pulled noodles? I could go there Tuesday night and Ma's on Monday night.

Thanks for all your noodle advice.

Finally: where in southern California would I go to buy my own dao xiao mian knife? I was unable to find one in either San Francisco or Hong Kong.
