Dan dan mian, or peddler’s noodles, are a favourite in my family, and in many Chinese restaurants. There are many versions of these noodles, but in my opinion the best one is soupy, enriched with buttery sesame paste and speckled with amber flecks of chilli oil. I like to perk mine up with a dollop of peanut butter, which is not traditional but lends the broth a marvellous nutty undertone. Eat piping hot… and slurping is mandatory.
