Have you ever had fresh, hand-made noodles? Have you ever seen them being made?!
Well, as much as I’d love to…I can’t offer you a bowl of noodles, but here’s a great video that shows how noodles are made-to-order, on-the-spot in a small street cafe in Dali Old Town. As you watch, I hope you’ll be patient and realize that this is the age-old process of turning a lump of dough into beautiful, delicious noodles! It’s worth a few minutes to catch a glimpse of what down-home cooking looks like – China style! And, this video actually captures the making of both flat and round noodles. No wonder this shop has become one of my go-to favorites for fresh noodles in Dali:
After all, what would a proper blog be without a post on food? I hope you enjoyed this quick foodie experience…I’m sure there will be more to come!
BTW, the full length video will be available soon on YouTube (just in case you are interested in the complete process of stretching the noodles!)
