With im­prov­ing cross-straight re­la­tions, the city is now boom­ing


street from num­ber 210, you will spot the en­trance to Jukou Jie, marked by a carved wood gate. There are many stalls here serv­ing snacks such as freshly pre­pared spring rolls. Walk fur­ther along Jukou Jie and keep an eye out on your right– you’ll spot the en­trance of a very nar­row lane (Jukou Heng Hang) that leads you to Jukou Ban Mian, a shop fa­mous for its noo­dles. All the fresh in­gre­di­ents – from seafood and meat to veg­eta­bles – are laid out on the ta­ble, you sim­ply pick what you want and they’ll make a broth out of them with co­rian­der. The clear soup is eaten with a bowl of noo­dles in a rich sauce that tastes like dan-dan noo­dle soup. A bowl of noo­dles here is RMB13 ($2.15). Nearby, Lian Huan serves baby oys­ter omelettes for RMB12 ($2) for a small por­tion – it’s equally de­li­cious and the mol­lusks taste fresh and sweet.
