One of my writing highlights of 2016 was my first published piece for Lucky Peach. I was amazed by the many noodle dishes I discovered in Chengdu.
From xiao long bao to hongshao rou to delicious sesame wontons and sesame noodles.
Someone told me you come to China for food, but you come to Chengdu for flavor. I found plenty of flavor and fell in love with the city.
From biang-biang to liangpi to goat blood with silk noodles, I got my noodle fill in Xi'an. Check out this photo-heavy post of noodles and more, including a few video clips that show how to prepare some of my favorite dishes from my short stay in China.
