Classic xxx Noodlesとあったらやっぱり調べざるを得ない。この"Guilin"、漢字だと「桂林」。そう、あの水墨画の場所。
Guilin rice noodles, mifen, is the most famous and popular local snack in Guilin. It is pliable but strong, fragrant and mellow, and cheap. Local people consume it as breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Guilin rice noodles can probably be found within 100m of any town or city area in Guilin.
Whatever the version of rice noodles, the gravy is the cream of it. The gravy is slow-boiled for several hours with various (up to 20) ingredients and spices, such as dried tangerine peel, cinnamon, and ginger. There is no standard recipe for making the gravy, so each noodle shop may have their own secret recipe that hopefully stands them out from other shops.
