Beef noodle soup with unlimited pickled vegetables?
Is there a Taiwanese/Chinese beef noodle soup place that has unlimited pickled vegetables (shuan chai) for condiment? All the places in Taiwan have this, but the places I've been to in the US only give you a little bit.
Places like New Taste Dumpling House, Mei Long Village, 101 Noodle Express, etc. all have canisters of pickled veggies on the table as part of their "lazy susan condiment tray".
Use as much as you want, and when you empty a canister just reach over to the adjacent table and start over.

So the chili sauce at Old Country Cafe uses bone marrow? What a shock to my veggie friends dousing their stinky tofu in it. Theirs and Pa Pa Walk's are so similar I wondered if it was a commercial brand...or if someone stole (or borrowed) the recipe.

Little China in Torrance serves home made head cabbage kim chee with their meals even with beef noodle soup. A funny combination but they speak Mandarin, Cantonese, and Korean here while serving basically Mandarin food. Their Korean soup noodle dishes (ie. Ja jang mein) are quite popular during lunch time. I love the intense beef brothiness of their beef noodle soup.
BTW, Seafood Port in Torrance serves pickled vegetables with their meals also.
