Lucky Noodle King (former Ding's Garden location)

Posted this in the Chuan Yu thread (, but since I don't see much on this place except a mention of its opening, thought I'd start a new thread as well.

Got a chance to stop by what I believe is called 天府之家 川菜面 (Tiānfǔ Zhī Jiā Chuān Cài Miàn - Lucky Noodle King), in the spot formerly occupied by the Ding's Garden on Valley (534 E Valley Blvd #10). I had their Dan Dan Mian ($4.50 for a medium-ish bowl). As usual, I ordered it without meat, so I can't speak for that offering, but I thought it was quite good - I think it's on a par with Chuan Yu (though slightly different), and maybe almost as good as #1 Noodle House. There was a decent amount of zha cai, and the sauce had a good texture. I'm sure they can make it spicy, but be sure to ask; mine arrived without much in the way of heat or Sichuan peppercorn.

I have a feeling that their actual specialties (mostly beef and chicken noodle soup) should be pretty good as well.
