Best Dan Dan Mien [London]

Does anyone know where the best dan dan mien is in London? Thanks!

  1. Been a while, but the best I had was the version at No. 10 near Earl's Court. The minced pork is properly crispy, and the oily sheen on the noodles has the right bit of numbing spiciness. Wish it wasn't as peanutty, but otherwise good.

    Love to hear of other versions -- how does Er Mei (aka Empress of Sichuan) or Bar Shu's version hold up (haven't been to Barshu in a long while and it has undergone various chef changes).

    1. re: limster

      I had it at Baozi last week and was quite impressed. A little softer but covered nicely
