Mian is a noodle place from the chef behind Chengdu Taste, which alone gets our attention. But more importantly: Mian lives up to expectations. The Chongqing-style noodles they serve here are fantastic and chewy, with a spiciness that creeps up on you. And we love the mung bean drink they pour for you when you arrive - the sweetness helps to cool the spice down when you need it. Get a plate of dumplings to start - the pork ones are juicy and peppery - and the zhiang jian noodles with a crispy egg, minced pork, and chickpea-like Chongqing peas are a must-order.
