拉面 La Mian World

the quest for the perfect noodle

In late 2008 we had to spend 22 hours in Xining 西宁, waiting for our train ride to Lhasa. With the Tibet-Permit in our pocket we explored this typical modern city in the Chinese province. Pretty boring, except for the Xidan-Market in the city centre.

The highlight was the Uigurian noodle stall “Yan Ge La Mian” which provided us with one of the most tasteful hand pulled noodle experiences in China. I can highly recommend it!

The rest of the day we spent in the Kumbum Monastery, almost 30 km from Xining and definitively a lot more interesting than the city itself. But in the evening we came back to fill our bellies again with these delightful noodles. It was the best preparation for our Tibetan adventure.
