Noodles & anniversaries

The Muslim noodle joint across the street from our complex just re-opened after sticking burger and fry decals to the walls remodeling. The place is grungy, dirty and has the BEST NOODLES around.
I ate there last week with the girls, and had been hounding NZ to go with me. I just knew he would love them. When I returned from Suzhou on Friday, he called me and told me that he, his assistant and our driver were on their way to Sal and I joined them for lunch.
It's my new fave, and NZ's second fave ( he still likes Dumplings more).

We even spent our 6th anniversary there today for lunch.

Normally we celebrate at a  nice steak house, but being in China and all--we thought we'd go rogue this year and enjoy local fare instead.

Noodle maker extrordinaire
They pull the noodles right in front of the store, and then cook them in a huge pot out front... You can add meat, veggies and spices. It reminds me a bit of Mongolian BBQ, made into soup, minus the pork option.

Watch him in action...
For 7 RMB ( $1.10) per bowl, it can't be beat.

Oh...and I got flowers. Lovely flowers.

Happy Anniversary, sunshine!
