Best noodles Guide 2016

This place comes with a warning to diners with who tend to get competitive about how much spice they can handle: “Chilies can cause stomach aches and diarrhea. Eat responsibly!” At this tiny dive with unfussy décor (brick walls, copper pipes and seating wherever you can find it) and extra seating upstairs via a rickety staircase, the line is out the door for a bite of these tasty noodle soups whose level of tongue-numbing-intensity ranges from 1 (manageable) to 5 (RIP taste buds). To each his own: dan dan noodles with ground pork, peanuts, Chinese cabbage and a rich vinegary consommé; noodles with beef, bamboo shoots and chives all floating in a flavorful broth; dumplings stuffed with pork and served with a Sichuan chili-garlic-sesame sauce. Due to his success, Mr. Cheng has opened up a bunch of locations across Paris: Deux Fois Plus de Piment, Trois Fois Plus de Piment Saint-Germain, Cinq Fois Plus. The math adds up. // T.V.X.

FEELING THIRSTY? If your mouth has caught fire, put it out with a Tsingtao beer (€3.60 for 330 ml), Yin Hao jasmine tea (€4.50) or Belvoir elderflower and rose lemonade (€4.50 for 250 ml).

PRICE: Noodle soup €9.50 to €12.90.
