Been meaning to eat at Taste of Yunnan for almost half a year, just because it's only place I've seen that sells 过桥米线 (lit. crossing bridge rice noodles). It's a regional specialty dish of Yun Nan, but also very popular back in Cheng Du.
One Hour's favouring better (more sour). Also got an appetizer of sweet potato 馍馍, which doesn't quite have an English translation. It's like the texture of a starchy 饼, which is like a thick slightly leavened bread.
Asian pastries need their own comprehensive dictionary.
This was also my mom's order, a steamed chicken side dish. It comes in an adorable clay vessel, but is kind of bland.
Finally, star of the meal:
It's a mini hotpot experience, the broth comes piping hot and you add in all the other stuff around it (minus the tea, which is pu-er. goes to show the authenticity of the restaurant), starting with the egg and ending with the noodles.The flavours and textures are quite good, but sadly can't compare to what I had back in China. But for those who haven't, you won't be disappointed by this. I'd be happy to eat this anytime.
