Behold the beginning of our annual 100 Favorite Dishes countdown! Every day until the publication of our fantabulous Best Of Issue, we'll list our favorite meals this year in descending order. Enjoy, pass it on, and tune in daily!

How is it possible we're a fifth of the way through the march to #1 and we haven't had niu rou mian on the list yet? There's nothing more satisfying during this weird weather than a bowl of thick pieces of beef shank with thick, hand-cut noodles and a star anise-spiked broth with pickled vegetables.

At Noodle House (whose sign in Chinese says Wafting Fragrance), which used to be 3-6-9 Shanghai in Anaheim, that delight can be yours for well under a 10-spot. Make sure to spend the dollar on the upgrade to "dao xiao mian", knife-cut noodles.
