A tad of help with Joe's (Noodle House)?

I stopped at Joe's Noodle House yesterday. I used to be able to order well there. Something's happened.
I got the N36, which I do like and came as expected. I got some cold dishes to go for dinner tonight.
First - has their beef jerky declined in quality? The HKP version is always good, but I thought I learned of this dish at Joe's. The confusion may be on me, but I'm checking.
Second - I wanted the cold noodle dish with the red oil only. I can order this correctly everytime at HKP but the last two times at Joe's I end up with the wrong thing. Last time I had the oil, but also this brown paste that I did not like. This time I tried to be very clear in saying I wanted the noodles with the red oil only - none of the brown paste. I only got the brown paste.
I also messed up by not ordering the crispy salty *anything* but that's also clearly on me.
Mainly - for the cold noodles - what am I missing, or what has changed? What dish (by number) am I looking to order?
I never do the cold noodle dishes (or any noodle dishes, for that matter) at Joe's except the Sichuan beef-noodle soup and the wontons in hot oil. There is only chili oil with the wontons and a nice dose of it in the soup broth. And I can never go to Joe's without getting the crispy salty squid, which is made complete with hot peppers in oil and black vinegar on the side.
I'm surprised the beef jerky is no longer reliable.
I don't know of any noodle dishes I like. Here are some of my favorites:
A01 Shredded radish
A05 Spicy and Sour Pickled Vegetables
A08 Cucumber Salad
A11 Pressed bean Curd
A41 Fried Baby Smelt with Peanuts
E13 Taro mash and Red Date Cake (very sweet, steamed to order)
W01 Wonton in Red Hot Sauce
R26 Rice Cake with Shredded Pork
F32 Spicy and tasty Fried Tofu
T21 Homemade bacon and leek
V04 Shredded Potatoes
Old version of H20, Fish over Vegetables - Hot and Numbing - Must ask for the old version
i had it last week it was the same as always... hard, chewy and thick. I have ahd other versions I like a lit better but from time to time I engiy giving my jaw a workout at Joe's
