Good ban mian’s are aplenty but a memorable one is like a needle in a haystack — the one here is exactly that.

Everything about this bowl was executed to a tee — from the springy noodles, deceptively simple yet complex broth, crisp anchovies, fresh and tender chicken, there was really nothing to complain about this. Even the cut chilli was not run-of-the-mill; they came sitting in a garlicky soy sauce dip that complemented the noodles really well. Would certainly come back again!
