JTYH Heavy Noodle II: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013

PHOTO BY ANNE FISHBEIN

Shi Peng's knife-shaved Shanxi noodles have become respected heavy hitters in a neighborhood where pho and wonton mein are king. At JTYH Heavy Noodle II, they preside over a list of Northern Chinese dumplings cooked three ways; noodles that are either stir-fried, sauced or in soup; and a few flourishes from other regions, like a Sichuan-style, water-boiled beef and cumin-spiced lamb. In the mian shi (wheaten foods) playbook, however, it's mao er duo, the nimble noodle shaped like cat ears — and called such in Chinese — that leaves a lasting impression. The mao er duo holds its own even after undergoing a flash stir-fry with strips of green cabbage and dots of minced garlic. Like many great comfort foods, it comes topped with an egg, in this case an omelette spiked with scallions and slivers of wood ear. 9425 Valley Blvd., Rosemead; (626) 442-8999. Mon., Wed.-Sun., 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Entrees $4.95-$9.95.
