Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the LA Weekly. This week he reviews Lucky Noodle King, which serves dan dan mian, a dish made with the spicy and mouth-numbing Sichuan pepper. He also likes the "crazy flavor eel," the fava beans with garlic and chile, the twice-cooked pork, and the Chong-qing fried chicken.
