Chinese Noodles Menu

food

Noodles are a staple food in Chinese cuisine, with a long history and wide popularity. Their first appearance can be traced back to the Eastern Han Dynasty (25 – 220 AD), and they became very popular during the Song Dynasty (960 – 1279 AD). Their cooking methods are numerous, though relatively simple. People can, according to their likes and tastes, add different ingredients and materials to make a great variety of noodles.

Chinese noodles vary in width. They can be thin as needles, or thick as chopsticks. However, when it comes to length, they are usually served long and uncut. This is because long noodles are a symbol of longevity in Chinese tradition. Thus, during birthday celebrations, people will serve "longevity noodles” hoping for longevity.
