Noodles & Dumplings
This street cafe will forever hold a special place in my heart (or should that be stomach?) because it was the first place I ate 醃麵 : 腌面 yān miàn : yam(1) miên(4) in Moiyan:
Greasy, delicious yam miên with a pork/tripe/goji leaf soup as accompaniment:
I think however, that this place was actually better...
...with the added bonus of offering the finer noodles 腌粉 yān fěn : yam(1) fen(?) which I think I rather preferred. In the photo it looks a bit anaemic but in real life it was delicious!
I also tried the Hakka version of cheung fun 腸粉 : 肠粉 cháng fěn but didn't enjoy it as much as the Cantonese version.
Home-style 炒麵 ： 炒面 chǎomiàn : cau(3) miên(4) at an aunt's house was also mouthwatering:
... as were these beautiful little steamed dumplings
The next picture is of lao tsu pan, thick rice noodles with minced beef:
And finally, two pics from the cafe that sold Hakka-style siu mai 燒賣 : 烧卖 shāomai : sau(1) mai(4)
