Mian West Adams
If you want a proper bowl of spicy Chinese noodles without driving out to the SGV, head to Mian. This Sichuan noodle spot comes from the chef behind Chengdu Taste, one of our favorite spots in Alhambra, and specializes in hand-pulled Sichuan-style noodles made with tongue-numbing peppercorns. The spacious dining room has huge street-facing windows, a sleek open kitchen, and an easy-to-use QR code ordering system attached to every table. It’s a great spot to roll in by yourself for a quick sit-down lunch or bring a group for a casual weeknight dinner. Don’t leave without trying their pork chili oil wontons and a mug of mung bean tea.
