Last month I popped into the remodeled Spices on 6th Avenue @ Clement after shopping at Green Apple books. The decor is now mostly black and gray with subdued lighting. The large tables are gone now in favor of two- and four-tops, so I won't be hosting any group banquets here.
Just an order of Tan Tan Noodles (dandan mian), $8.99, was plenty for a solo dinner. Very mushy noodles, but good enough. The ground pork was not integrated with the seasonings, more like it was just ladled on top. Some fermented cai tones, plenty of ma-la spiciness, but no peanut or sesame paste. A few pieces of choy sum added greenery, and as can be seen in the photo, part of a large leaf was just plain raw. So overall, a sloppy effort.
