… which can be found street side all over Zhuhai, make the most delicious rice noodle rolls, or in Mandarin: chang fen (肠粉).

It starts with a rice noodle batter ladled on and spread onto the griddle, er, drawer. Add an egg. Then a smattering of pork and a sprinkling of chives. Close the drawer, count to 30 and open. Scrape the noodle off the griddle and slide onto a plate. Roll it up. Add a little lettuce for roughage. Pour sweet soy sauce on top. Serve.

Amazing breakfast.
