    Chinese noodles are said to be the best in the north of China, but I've found some amazing noodles here in Sichuan, in Southern China. In Sichuan province, there is a large variety of different noodles to try. One of my favourite, even more so than the internationally famous Dan Dan noodles (dan dan mian 担担面) is the mixed sauce noodles with cowpeas, the jiangdoumian 豇豆面, they are top notch. Some of them are like Chinese street food, while others are in restaurants. Most of them are good.
    I found this place in Chengdu after biking around one night in search of the best noodles with a hungry stomach. I love watching the local Chinese cooking and getting to taste the noodles afterwards brings so much joy. Chinese cuisine is so diverse, and noodles are one of the staples. Each recipe is different, and in Chengdu, Sichuan, I've come to love noodles more than rice or even many of the stir fried dishes. There is beef noodle soup, dan dan noodles, dry chili paste mixed sauce noodles, spare rib noodles, sweet potato noodles with intestine, and a lot of them are really spicy. There are also many hand pulled noodle joints and blade-sheared noodles as well.
    The name and address for this local noodle joint is:
    Name: 廖老幺杂酱面(Liào lǎo yāo zá jiàng miàn)
    Address: 金鹏街12号 (Jīnpéng jiē 12 hào)

    Why is it awkward? It’s more awkward when you kiss and hold your girlfriend in public in front of all. He is not awkward at all. Just because he have a soul and know the meaning culture and respect. Is it wrong to feel there as a big community?

    At 1:26 he says "Thank You" and the lady says "No need to thank". Why would she say that? It seems kind of rude. Might that be the rough translation of "You're welcome!" in Manderin?
