Sesame Peanut Noodles

I saw this recipe on TV . It apparently was created by a restaurateur, Shorty Tang in NY, Hwa Yuan , 40 years ago. The restaurant closed in the 80s but the dish is still remembered !! When an article about the restaurant and this dish in particular, was published in 2007, it renewed the interest and prompted his grandsons to bring it back in 2011 at Smorgasburg, a weekly food fest in Brooklyn, NY. The recipe intrigued me..some ingredients are typically Chinese but some are definitely not !!!!! Did you know that the Chinese always make noodles on a birthday ….they believe that the longer the noodles , the longer your life span !!!! Silky smooth noodles encased in a smooth nutty , fragrant sauce that has heat, sweetness and tang !!! What more can a person ask for ???? My taste buds do the happy dance every time I eat this !!!!   more
