Nouilles du Riz de Pont, une spécialité locale que vous ne pouvez pas rater
One of my biggest hobbies is trying the delicious food of all kinds,so you can call me a foodie or gourmet as you like.And of course,I know a lot of authentic delicacies and today I’m going to take you to taste the the Cross Bridge Rice Noodles.Having originated in Mengzi County of Southwest China’s Yunnan Province, the Cross Bridge Rice Noodles dish boasts a history of more than 100 years. With continuous renovation by chefs specializing in Yunnan Cuisine, the dish has enjoyed growing fame both at home and abroad, and every visitor to Yunnan should definitely try the famous snack besides taking in the breathtaking natural scenery.
Yunnan’s most famous dish is definitely across the bridge noodles. The story behind the rice noodle dish basically goes that a scholar retired to an island in Mengzi to study for the imperial exams. His wife would bring him lunch every day by crossing a bridge but by the time she got there his food would be cold. She discovered that keeping a layer of oil on top of a bowl of soup would keep the broth hot enough for him to cook the ingredients when she arrived.
The dish, just like the story, has numerous variations but the basic elements remain the same. Many restaurants in Kunming will offer you the dish at different price levels, the more you pay the more (and more expensive) ingredients you get.
Before the meal, a bowl of hot soup, a bowl of rice modles, some slices of meat, fresh vegetable slices and some other ingredients are to be prepared. The soup is the most important, which is boiled from chicken, duck and pig bones. It is rather hot although there is no steam flowing from it. When these are ready, first put in the raw meat slices and stir them till they are done; then put in the ingradients, vegetable slices and rice noodles. It is delicious as the meat is very tender.
