I have recently got pretty obsessed with Dan Dan noodles. Unsurprisingly, online resources are all over the map with recipes/techniques involved. Anybody here have have any tips, 'essentials", or thoughts on this dish in general? Thanks in advance!

Thanks Ordo. Nice vid. The basic elements of Dan Dan seem pretty consistent (except for a whackadoo Alton Brown...thing) but what people feel is "key" varies pretty wildly. Time to play I guess...
Also, I think Mean Kiwi is quickly becoming the most over figure on the boards! Waiting for her/his podcast in 2016!
Yes, very popular dish. Good to see it made with the toasted sesame paste instead of peanut butter.
Personally, I've not found the dish compelling, More heat that I enjoy in the ones I've tried and the other flavors seem kind of muddled.
But if you find a clearly superior version, i'll be glad to give it a go again.
