Question re: Grand Sichuan's Dan Dan Noodles

Scott K | Aug 6, 2001 10:18 AM

A friend and I went for lunch at the Midtown location the other day. We shared the pork and crabmeat soup dumplings, and on the reccomendation of many people on this site, ordered the Dan Dan Noodles and the Tea Smoked Duck. The dumplings were good, but not even close to Joe's Shanghai, and the duck was excellent. We eagerly awaited the noodles but were very dissappointed. We expected them to be spicy, but they were much hotter than we expected. We didn't mind so much, except that the dish didn't have much flavor. When it arrived, with the small bits of meat or whatever it is, we expected a great taste. However, to us, it just seemed like an oily noodle dish that was very hot. Was it not prepared well this time or does this sound right to all of you?
