dandan noodles - South Carolina

Anyone know where--preferably in the Columbia, SC area, but willing to travel--one can find the traditional Sichuan dish, dandan noodles (aka Dandanmian or Ma Jiang Mian)? Thanks you.

    Have you tried going to Sun Ming and sweet-talking them? I can't imagine they don't know how to prepare it..but maybe they're not set up for it. Other than that I got nothin'. Sorry. Keep us posted.

      They have a chili oil and ground meat noodle dish called Jag Jang Mein which is similar, and good. But--and I know this is going to sound really picky--it isn't exactly right and I prefer the version with ground peanuts or sesames mixed in.

      It's a really simple dish to prepare at home. Have you considered DIY? I'm a big fan of Fuschia Dunlops cookbooks.

        I have made it before, but sometimes you just want to be able to pick it up, you know?

        Can't really say, but on Decker Blvd from the Columbia Mall going toward I-77 there are more international (asian) restaurants & shops than you can shake a stick at.

        I would try there.
