DanDan is a good weekday lunch or post-work spot if you happen to work nearby in Rittenhouse, and they also have a reasonably priced Happy Hour (which unfortunately ends at 6pm). But if you’re able to get a seat at the bar before then and don’t mind rubbing elbows - literally - with other Center City diners, we’d advise ordering one of each of the baby DanDan noodles, the dry-seasoned chicken wings, and the spicy crispy cucumbers.

Considering it’s located in the middle of Rittenhouse, it’s not surprising that DanDan is on the smaller side, and seating options are tight. Call ahead if you’re with a group (or consider getting your noodle fix at one of the larger Chinatown establishments). If you go in expecting an entire menu of familiar Taiwanese and Szechuan cuisine, you might be disappointed. But if you walk through the doors hungry and open to dishes like the pork belly burgers, you’ll leave satisfied and full.
