This Sichuan joint has potential

The photos here looked promising so decided to try it out.

After browsing the menu there were quite a few items I wanted to order and the prices were reasonable because of it's location.

Ordered the bean noodles in chili oil and the Chengdu dan dan noodles.

These bean noodles (Liangfen) were slightly off-white in colour, translucent and thick made with mung bean starch which have a jelly like texture.
They were in quite a lot of spicy hot chili hot oil which had vinegar in it to make it more appetizing.
Unfortunately, I found them too spicy but they were as good as the ones I had at the Mandarin Oriental.

The noodles were flat and white which are better than those soft round ones.
I was told to mix the noodles and sauce quickly.
The dan dan sauce was different because there were no peanuts in the sauce but there were some black bits which were quite salty and gave it a nice flavour but again too spicy. 

The noodles had an interesting bean taste which reminded me of Wei Lih jah jan mien instant noodles that have a sachet of chili and black bean paste found in UK's Oriental supermarkets in UK.
