Lanzhou style noodles at the obviously named LAN Noodle chain's Arcadia outpost. Food was legit even if the decor was a little bland-contemporary, service was excellent (yes, this is a legit Chinese place!), and yes, do mix up the number one LAN NOODLE dish for photographs less it look too plain. Several different kinds of noodle types/thicknesses, might have to get the wide flat ones next time. Nom!
Oddly did not have enough spicy Chinese food at lunch (was tempted to order the tripe and maybe another appetizer, but decided against it), so sprung for an order of mao cai from Sichuan Impression for dinner. That suffered a bit in presentation from being to-go, and was only offered as a mild spicy... but turns out mild spicy mao cai is pretty legit spicy. Quite good as well.
