Dan Dan Noodle (

Most favored dishes in Chengdu – Dan Dan Noodle

Dan Dan Noodle, one of the most famous street foods, consists of a spicy sauce containing preserved vegetables, chili oil, Sichuan pepper, minced pork and scallions poured over the noodles. “Dan Dan ” refers to how the noodles were carried in the past. “Dan” means carrying a burden. Street paddlers often carry a burden with two pots over their shoulders, one of the pot filled with noodles and the other with sauce. In Sichuan province, you will find the noodles come with a chili-laced broth which is almost impossible for non-Sichuan-native to slurp. In places like Beijing and Shanghai, restaurants usually serve it with a less spicy version. If you are a fun of chili’s, don’t miss it!
