四川担担面 Spicy Szechuan Noodles in Soup - HuTong Dumpling Bar AUD11.80

Commonly known as 担担面 Dan Dan Mian or Dan Dan Noodles, these were a rather poor example. The minced pork topping was rather one-dimensionally spicy, lacking in 花椒 Sichuan Pepper or garlic, unlike the 担担面 Dan Dan Noodle we had in Sichuan.

 

Just as well I like soggy noodles too! They were nice and silky though, probably just overcooked.

With such a chic modern decor with Chinese flourishes and the good 小笼包 Shao Long Bao (correct Pinyin: Xiao Long Bao), it is a pity that the food is merely mediocre.
