Dan Dan Noodles originated from Sichuan, China, and it has since become popular all over the world. Sichuan, also spelled as Szechuan, is the birthplace of many Chinese food we love: kung pao chicken, kung pao shrimp, hot and sour soup, etc. Sichuan cooking is famous for its intense and deep flavors.
I have tried many versions of Dan Dan Noodles, but the ones I had in Sichuan lingers. Unlike the usual watered down versions, Dan Dan Noodles should be extremely flavorful, savory, nutty, spicy, and slightly sharp tasting.
Dan Dan Noodles are so good that there are regional variations in Japan and Korea. My Dan Dan Noodles recipe calls for Mizkan brand condiments. It’s absolutely delicious and authentic, and I am sure you will love it!
