Delicious YunNan Cross-the-Bridge Rice Noodle Soup

在昆明转了一圈滇池和西上。有点累,但离上飞机去丽江还有一段时间。而且心中总觉得没有吃上正宗的云南过桥米饯好象于心不甘。于是一行四人打了一辆车到昆明市内有名的的“桥香园“一饱口福。所谓有名就是地道的昆明人都会光顾的好地方。过桥米饯分好几个档次,从9元到78元。


Yunnan's famed Across the Bridge Rice Noodles is known as "Guo-Qiao Mi-Xian" in Chinese.

Legend has it that guoqiao mixian came about when a young scholar retreated to another place to prepare for his imperial examination. His loving wife would travel and cross a nearby bridge to bring him his daily meal. Frequently, his meal would turned cold by the time it gets to him. One day, quite by chance, she discovered a bowl of chicken soup could keep warm with a layer of oil on top. From then on, she would serve the noodles and meat slices with the oil layer soup and the young scholar could enjoy a warm meal every day. When the scholar did well in the examination, he credited his success to his wife's noodles,hence, this dish Across the Bridge Rice Noodles was made known.


The price of the cross-bridge noodle ranges from 9 RMB to 78RMB. Here are all the ingredients for the most expensive one, including chicken, pork, lamb, beef, seafood, mushroom, etc.


Add all the meat and ingredients first. 先把所有的配料放进一大海碗汤里。


Then, add the noodle. A huge bowl of noodle soup enough for at least 3 people to share. Yummy!


有好菜岂能没有冰啤酒?! 来点下酒菜,同我家马老者晕几杯。 又香又辣的卤鸡珍和牛杂。


看我家王老太婆和马老者吃得多么的同心协力!!!不愧是几十年夫妻啊。


我妈是当老师的。对学生那套严词逼供是驾轻就熟。一看这张照片我就知道她肯定又是在对刘医生”洗脑“。肯定是几辈子的旧账都全部挖掘出来了。你说有我这个能干的老妈,我每天的八卦新闻还少得了吗?
