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.
