Spicy Sesame Noodles


Growing up one of my favorite dining out dishes was Hot Sesame Noodles. It was a treat that we would get every once in a while after watching a performance at my Dad's school, Laguardia High School for the Performing Arts - NYC.  It was a tradition to go to my parent's favorite small packed Chinese restaurant; start with rose tea and hot & sour soup, then the noodles. My Dad still talks about those Noodles! Unfortunately the restaurant closed leaving us without our noodle fix. It wasn't until almost 11 years later when my friend, Shuang, found a  restaurant that made incredible Hot Sesame Noodles. It took me awhile and a few taste tests but I was able to make a version close to the one I remember from my childhood.

These noodles are spicy, slightly sweet and nutty, topped with crunchy vegetables and sesame seeds. They are great hot or cold, and even better the next day for lunch!

Here's my recipe:
