Cold Sesame Noodles

I'm trying to find a place in Los Angeles that has cold sesame noodles like NYC does.
I'm so frustrated! What kind of Chinese food is it there???...., that every chinese restaurant in NYC has the noodles and no one here does?
Help me please....I need my noodles!!
Thanks,
Cissie

  1. I have gone through "the search" as well and have had no luck. The few places that have them on their menus, don't compare to the one's in NYC. You can try Soy Bean Restaurant on Wilshire in WLA. Mainly a "to go" restaurant. The noodles are passable...

    1. OK, I write this with some misgiving, since this is still a really exceptional and yet little known Sichuan place. But, I can identify with the unfulfilled longing, and believe me, there's is better than anywhere in NY.
      It's in the stripmall on northwest corner of Las Tunas and Mission, in San Gabriel. The place, in Chinese, has signage that indicates it's "
      Chuancai", or Sichuan food. It's the last place along the northwest corner of the stripmall. Small. Delicious.

        I think it's called Noodl (sic) House.

          There's a new sign out there. It's now called Tasty Noodle House. Don't know if it's the same place or not--there are some Szechwan noodle dishes on the menu, but also a lot of non-noodle dishes, too.

      2. I agree wholeheartedly... not sure what they do w/the noodles in NYC but they're wonderful and I'd love to find them here.

        1. 101 Noodle Express has them.

          And, if you ask nicely, the kitchen and staff at Ding's Garden will make it for you.

          1. The real good dumpling place in El Monte...Dumpling 10053 or something like that has a good version.

            Noodle King on Valley has them

              Do what we do, freeze the NY stuff the night before you fly! Kung Pao Bistro is ok in a crunch.

              1. re: WHills

                We get it regularly at Noodle King as well...

                  i've had them at D10053 and it's very good. definitely try an order of their boiled dumplings if you're gonna eat there as well. shrimp/leek and 3 flavor dumplings.
