Heading the kitchens at two of the hottest restaurants in the country, the Cantonese powerhouse Mr Wong and the Asian-inflected freestyle party that is Ms G's, Dan Hong knows a thing or two about noodles.
Throw in the fact that, as the son of veteran Vietnamese local hero restaurateur Angie Hong, and the chowhound adventures in street and suburban dining that have made him one of Instagram's most closely watched cooks, and you've got a very good reason to see what Lord Hong means when he talks about using his noodle.
In this session, it means a trip to Japan in the form of cold somen with crabmeat, leeks and ginger, then an excursion back to China with a spicy lo mein mix of fresh egg noodles, Angus beef, mushrooms and XO sauce. It's entirely possible that there'll also be some discussion of sneakers, R'n'B and Hong's latest eating discoveries, but we'll leave those for the night.
