cooked. Just like the definition, the rice noodles is made of rice flour. First they mixed the flour and water to a paste, then push the paste though a kind of sieve( Er, something like that), then you can see the paste becomes noodles. They directly push the noodles that just been made into boiling water or boiling soup. After a while, when the noodles are boiled, they take out the noodles and put into bowls, together with meat, vegetables, flavouring and some kind of soup. Then a bowl of Manual rice noodles is accomplish. Usually the price is 锟3 to 5, very suitable for breakfast or lunch.

Acctually the customers can add different flavourings themselves. Like add more peanuts, or add more soup. My personal favorite is add a Youtiao(娌规潯), it tastes delicious when it is put into soup, haha~

  1. Bruce , Interesting. What is the brown piece of food resting on the top of noodles. It looks like a breadstick. Also another question how do say Manual rice noodle in Chinese. Sorry I can’t read Chinese characters. Do many Chinese people make homemade noodles at home? from “scratch” ” Or do they they buy the noodle ready made from the grodery store.

  2. That food is called “Youtiao”(娌规潯), just like I said, my personal favorite. You can see the intro from wikipedia by typing the word “youtiao”. The Manual rice noodles is my translation, because I didn’t find anyone who translate it before. The pronunciation is “sheng zha mi fen” or “shou zha mi fen”.
    Normally we don’t make the Manual rice noodles at home, as you can see, that is not convenient to make it home just for breakfast. Yes, we usually buy it from restaurant and take it home after it was cooked.

  3. Bruce,
    We can get these same type of noodles here in Chongqing and it is one of my favorite lunches. In one of the places they make them, the cook flips the rice mixture as high as 5 meters into the air before allowing it to go through the sieve. Very entertaining.
    Dan wanted to know what the brown pieces of food were on top of the noodle dish. I to would like to know. It looks like some kind of fried vegetable possibly?

  4. Youtiao. I’ve answered. It is some kind of Chinese doughnut or fried bread stick. You can see it in both northern and southern China. It’s a very common breakfast in China, you haven’t seen it in Chongqing?
