If you love spicy Sichuan food and street food in China, then you're going to love Dan Dan noodles, because they are so flavorful and covered in a rich chili oil!

    China has so many amazing street foods to try, and I've been filming and documenting them for you for the past 4 years. In my opinion, the best noodle dish in China is dan dan noodles, right here in Chengdu, Sichuan. China has some of the best street food around the world, and these dan dan noodles were INSANELY GOOD, some of the best noodles in China for sure!
    If you're traveling to China to eat and try different street foods, and perhaps want to learn a little bit about Chinese food and chinese cooking in the process, you need to try a few different variations of Dan Dan noodles. When they prepare the traditional Chinese dan dan noodle recipe right on the street, you can watch as they scoop the main ingredients like chili oil, soy sauce, sichuan peppercorn, and garlic right into the noodle bowl and then place the steaming hot noodles right over top. It's truly satisfying! After they put the noodles over top, they place their signature fried ground pork on top, known in Chinese as shaozi.
    When your dan dan noodles arrive to your table, it is very important to mix up all the chili oil and all of the ingredients throughout. This ensures that the flavour and the hot oil gets coated onto each noodle before you take a bite. It's also quite satisfying mixing the noodles and watching the dark red oil slowly turn each noodle from white into red and silky smooth.
    When you take your first bite, you'll understand why this is one of the BEST Chinese street foods you need to try. The spicy noodles are coated with an incredibly aromatic chili oil and really send you straight up to heaven! It's one of the best forms of Chinese cooking!

    Why do you keep saying “tai bung lah”. I know the Chinese says it, but you seem to use it at every opportunity. It comes across a little weird.

    Just to share with u. The Chinese said that when we eat noodles we're not supposed to cut off the noodles with our front teeth. We should keep eating it down our throat. If we cut down the noodles it's like we cut down our age. That's y noodles is kept in long textures even by the hawkers. So that we kept eating the noodles until the end of its *tail*. Same goes with yee sang...

    Согласен полностью ! Сам смотрю и пишу с этого смарта, но 6ляTь мне в голову никогда не приходило писать эти детсадовские выcepы в комментах чуть ли не под каждым видео.
    Этим страдают обoccанные пи3дюки-мoлoкocoы aka прыщавые шкaльники-шaкaльники, которым мамка купила смарт и они теперь везде трубят, что смотрят через этот смарт)), либо чyдики повзрослее, но с интеллектом как у маленьких шкoльниkoв, которые явно не блещут умом и сообразительностью.😆🤣🤦.
    P.s. Десятая Miui - сырая xyeта. А мaлoлетки ccутся кипятком: А ТИБЕ ПРИШЛА 10? Я МЕНЕ ПРИШЛА ! И Я ДАВОЛЕН КАК СЛОН !!!!!?!!!!!!!!.
    Xepня полная, качество камеры урезали, автономность хуже. Всё это тысячи раз обсосали на том самом, крупнейшем форуме, про который мелкие пиздюkи ещё слышать не слышали.
