Craving for Sichuan cold noodle ( liang fun), suggestions?
I am pregnant and have been craving Sichuan spicy foods for weeks now, specifically the Sichuan liang fun. I'm looking for the ma-la type where the noodles are white, sliced long and are thick. Almost like it was once a thick brick, then sliced up.
Anyone know where I can get this or have any idea what I'm talking about?
(it's not the yellow cold noodle)

That style is often called Sichuan "Northern Bean Jelly" or similar. I have had a good one at Chuan Xiang Ge "Mascot" (Richmond), and Hot Luck (Kingsway). CXG serves a rendition that is closer to what you are looking for. (The more common liang pi is clear and soft. You can get that kind at a number of places.)
