We drove t the small city (1 million, a Chinese small) from Chengdu to check out the world’s largest premodern statue:
The Great Buddha of Leshan, carved into the cliffside of the river 1200-1300 years ago!
And so we caught a quick lunch between tourist stops.
At this anonymous (unless you read Chinese) noodle shop our guide took us to. He has a penchant (apparently) for hole-in-the-wall noodles.
We sat outside so as not to broil in the 100deg heat.
Non spicy pork noodles. Pork “ribs” similar to what you sometimes get at dimsum places.
Plain noodles for my picky son. Chinese don’t actually like to make plain noodles, and in this case they felt compelled to at least stick some green onion on top.
I had the spicy pork noodles. Not bad, some kind of pork broth with a ton of chili and the same pork nuggets.
Not the greatest meal ever but it hit the spot.
