Han Dynasty is a Sichuan restaurant chain based in Philly. The hubs and I stopped by to check this place out, as we had heard that they were famous for their dan dan noodles.
Their menu was pretty extensive, offering appetizers (such as pork belly with sweet chili oil sauce, beef & trip in chili oil, spicy crispy cucumber, etc.), soups, noodle dishes, fried rice, various entrees (dry pot, cumin-focused, etc.), specials (ginger duck, spicy tofu fish, spicy hot pot, etc.), vegetables, and lunch specials.
We got an order of the Dan Dan Noodle as well as an order for the Cold Sesame Noodles. YUM! The Dan Dan Noodle was super spicy, but the flavor was pretty good – the noodles were slightly overcooked, but I am thinking because of the heat from the sauce, as this is a hot noodle dish. This is probably one of the best dan dan noodle I’ve had!
The Cold Sesame Noodles was also unbelievably good, and the hubs remarked on how it is one of the best cold sesame noodles he’s had! The noodles were cooked perfectly al dente, and the sesame sauce was just so peanuty and yummy!
I highly suggest in ordering both of these noodle dishes, as the Cold Sesame Noodles is a way to ‘cool’ off your tongue after eating the spicy Dan Dan Noodle!
Note that the menu rates the spiciness level from 1-10 (the Dan Dan Noodle is rated at a 6 – no joke!).
Service was a little on the slower end but friendly, so just be persistent in waving them down if you need anything! I can’t wait to go back!
