>> A bite of Zhenjiang - Guo gai mian

Zhu sheng mian, literally Bamboo pole noodle, is a traditional food in Guangzhou, south China's Guangdong province. Unlike other noodles, fresh duck eggs are needed in making Zhu sheng mian.

When making dough, people mix dry flour with duck egg liquid instead of water. After kneading the dough, a bamboo pole is used to compress the dough. This is the most important step. The dough should be compressed into flat and thin slices. In addition, dry flour should be spread on the slices to prevent them from sticking together. A machine is used to cut the slices into fine noodles. The noodles should be stored in a fridge for 48 hours before boiling in a pot.
