China’s 10 most notable noodle dishes
Tomorrow is China’s 70th birthday. Food is always an indispensible part of any birthday celebration, and in China, as traditional would have it, the signature birthday dish is not a cake, but a bowl of noodles. The noodles are known as changshoumian, which literally means “long-life noodles”. Chinese people believe that the longer the noodle, the better the wishes for a long and healthy life.
