Note: Chinkiang vinegar can be found in most Asian markets. Any kind of Chinese black vinegar can be used in its place. Pickled mustard root is found either in the refrigerated or canned goods section of most Asian markets. You can replace it with chopped cabbage kimchi if unavailable. Fresh wheat noodles can be found in most Asian grocers. If unavailable, six ounces of dried wheat noodles or even spaghetti will work fine.
