I absolutely love cold sesame noodles—the kind you find at many Chinese restaurants in the U.S. I'd love to know your favorite recipes for making them at home. Thanks so much!

I’ve made and enjoyed these from Smitten Kitchen.

I've made the ones from the NY Times and they came out well.

Mine is more or less the same as SK except I use “thick spaghetti”, water chestnuts instead of cukes, and scallions and sesame seeds for the garnish.

This one from the takeout is a favorite of ours.

I loved this recipe when I had Food of Sichuan out from the library: Sichuan Sesame Noodles in Strange Flavor Sauce. Some startup cost to making the sweetened aromatic soy sauce, but once I had a batch I could whip out the noodles easily. (I hadn't been able to find this recipe online for months, and I'm excited to make them again. Thank you for your question!)

The NYTimes one linked above is our go-to and it absolutely rules.

You might try the recipe from Woks of Life. Great source of traditional and Americanized Chinese food.

I was coming here to recommend the same recipe that reptile has linked to above, it's really good.

I use this recipe by June Xie at Delish. So good.
