zha jiang noodles in MTN. VIEW
Hi board. I performed a search and found a place that sounded interesting in Sunnyvale only to see the last post by M. Wong stating that the place had closed... :-(
For the record, I have not enjoyed anything at Yulong off Castro.
I read all the links and it seem like Zha Jiang Noodles are a "comfort food." That sounds great. I have only enjoyed the pork version. Wikedpedia had a photo with thick white noodles. I have always had it with the thicker (egg?) noodles.
Thanks for recommendations - anwhere from Palo Alto down to Santa Clara is fine.
Though slightly out of your range, Four Seasons on de anza just north of 85 in SJ is reputed to have hand-pulled ones (I can't vouch for them) There's Korean places in Santa Clara with the Korean version (jajangmyeon), which has a thicker/sweeter sauce and Korean sensibilities (comes with pickles, etc.), such as Zazang on El Camino (east of Lawrence); also a comfort food, but quite a different dish, actually.
