MMMmmm Those Great Northern Noodles

Hey Hey and a Big G'Day to ya After a Big night at Ting Tings Bar drinking Corona Beer we all stumble to what we've now dubbed 'That Pub Noodles Place'. Mate, the noodles are easily the best in town and I'd rank them in the top five list of my best noodles in China. Every noodle is hand made right before your very eyes. The family is from Lanzhou in Gansu which is an hour from Baiyin City where I lived. Many Chinese consider the lamb noodles in Lanzhou to be some of the best in China and to be serious, I'm going to join them and add my vote.

How happy was I when not long after arriving in Shaowu I walked past a little noodle bar and spotted the young guy with his white hat on. The white hat not only spells a man from the north west of China but also a man who knows his beef. From memory in one of my Yangshuo entries I wrote about the bbq guys with the white hats and how they are usually the most popular. Same thing here!

Not only in Gansu can you see this beautiful happening but also along the Sichuan/Tibetan Highway and I'd say all the way across to Kashgar. It's such a treat to sit and watch the Noodle Man throwing a ball of dough around and then by way of magic turn it into many long noodles that you will soon be slurping away on. Add some lamb, lemongrass and other special spices and you have some of the best noodles I've ever tasted. Beers & Northern Lamb Noodles to ya...shane
