Noodle Soup

As we said before, we couldn't get enough and kept on coming back to the same stall at the Chinese Market in Kashgar. This noodle soup straight from the wok took our beloved vendor two minutes to cook up. Watch and learn:

First cook thin rice noodles and bok choy in boiling water.

When the noodles are cooked remove from the flame and strain. Transfer into a bowl and add a ladle of meat broth made with pieces of meat, ginger, garlic and green onions.

Don't forget a spoonful of pickled greens (any cabbage will do), to add that Chinese Market flavor.


The same dish comes pre-packaged in styrofoam with lots of additives and MSG. It is a common dinner for the locals on the night train, as they pour boiling water, supplied by the somewhat irritated train staff, and slurp noisily, munching on raw pork sausage on the side. The Royals tried this and were appalled.
