Cold Noodles with Sesame Sauce in Dallas

I'm looking a Chinese resturant in Dallas that serves really good cold noodles with sesame sauce. There use to be several places in New York City that really satisified my cravings. Where do I go in Dallas?

      Thanks for the reply. I called King Noodles. They said they don't make that dish. Too bad...

      1. re: dallasTom

        Wait. You called Kings and they spoke English, or you speak Chinese? Just curious.

        1. re: DallasDude

          They spoke English. I'm still looking. I guess I'm going to have to make fix Tom's Cold Noodles...

    2. Might try any of the Sichuan places....they have a spicy cold noodle

      Royal Sichuan in Richardson
      Sichuanese Cuisine in Plano
      Little Sichuan in Plano

      I would also call Hong Kong Royal in Carrollton as they might be receptive to preparing the dish for you.

      1. Tei-An in Dallas serves cold buckwheat noodles with a sesame sauce. It probably isn't quite what you're looking for, but you might like it.

        I know most Korean restaurants serve a cold sesame noodle dish that may be close to what you're looking for. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japchae

          Tei An makes handmade noodles, and you can spy a little show.

        2. I know of two places serving "Dan Dan Noodles" (cold szechuan noodles) in Dallas not previously mentioned above.
          1. Tongs House. The very first restaurant in Dallas to serve this cold noodle dish. Over 40 years ago!
          2. Mr. Wok Asian Bistro

            Must be a different take on dan dan mian, and didn't occur to me to think of those restaurants. I've always had spicy ones with chile sauce and peppers, which is without sesame sauce or a sweet flavor profile.

            1. re: twinwillow

              i wasn't fond of the long black hair that showed up in my food the last time i went to Tong's House. i know these things happen but ... disgusting

              i love Tei An's noodles with black sesame, great suggestion Webra

              noodle-making session!

            2. Confucius say, "long black hair in noodle good sign for long life" Confucius also say, "but, long black hair in noodle, disgusting".

              1. To the best of my knowledge, NYC sesame noodles are really a NYC thing. Central Market makes a version that they sell in their deli case. I have never had sesame noodles outside NYC. CM's doesn't use the same noodles. If it were me, I'd go to Super H-Mart and buy the noodles and make it myself. You can download a recipe off the internet. I've seen the recipes. It's so easy and you can add more veggies. Don't do Uncle Tom's or Annie Chun. You're in Dallas and have access to decent noodles.

                  What got me interested again was that a friend in Atlanta phoned and said that they were about to have cold noodles at a resturant we used to go to in Atlanta. What a coinsidence.

                  1. re: dallasTom

                    I've had many Chinese noodle dishes where they use sesame paste and they are similar to NYC sesame noodles, but the NYC version is definitely Americanized. Don't most versions have some peanut butter? In my experience, the noodles using sesame paste tend to show up more at Northern restaurants than Cantonese or HK style places. Try Little Szecheun. They won't have the exact same thing, but the more authentic version is absolutely delicious.

                2. I just ran across your long-ago post about szechuan dan dan noodles in Dallas. I love this dish and my favorite place to eat it in Dallas is at Szechwan Pavillon, Buckner @ Garland Rd, Dallas. They call it Noodles with Hot Sesame Sauce on their menu and I'm not sure how authentic it is because it is very garlicky. They serve it with an awesome kind of Scechuan cole slaw that is not even listed on the menu. You can download their menu from their website (remember they spell it Szechwan). Of course, this restaurant serves many other wonderful dishes but as far as I'm concerned, Szechwan Pavillon's version of Dan Dan noodles is the ultimate comfort food and the worth every penny of the $3.50 price- I'd love to have the recipe.

                    Well, I know where you can get this... it's a simple dish, liang mian. Go to the Asian Food court on legacy. There is a Taiwanese restaurant next to the springroll cart called 本店,"ben dian." Sorry no English name. They have the dish you are looking for though.

                  2. The newly opened Noodle House in Plano, Coit and Park inside the former May Hua Supermarket space fronting Park and closer to the Walgreens has this dish. No idea on the taste just saw it on the menu.
