Za jiang mian & Guai wei mian

For dinner I went to a small noodle joint a couple of blocks from my hotel.  I tried Za jiang mian which are noodles with ground pork and a mixture of ground chilies, soy sauce and vinegar.  The dish was simple and tasty and had a good amount of heat from the ground chilies.  This comes with a small bowl of pickled vegetables. I also tried Guai wei mian which are noodles with chicken gizzards and a broth flavored with star anise and Sichuan peppercorns.  The Sichuan peppercorns have a slight numbing effect on your mouth, but not over the top.  Each bowl costs around $1.50 US.
