Having received two replies already I find I must post an addendum to my
request for dan dan mein.
The noodles were served hot, not cold, and the sauce did not contain
ANY trace of sesame or peanut flavor. It may have contained some meat,
but I'm not sure. It was hot in both flavor and temperature, somewhat
oily, filled with red chili flakes, and a deep red in color.
(BTW, I am guessing, as I never saw the name written, but I think "dan"
is a trasliteration of the character for a shade of red.)
