Crossing Bridge Noodles - Atria

On a whim we sat down to try the crossing the bridge noodles after our dinner. I share this bowl with my wife. The last we ate this was in Shenzhen minority village in 1995.

As people said about noodles, the goodness is in the broth! So the bowl, has more to do with what's go in the soup than what's the toppings on the noodles. The broth has little the msg and this indicated that most of the taste was from the bones of pigs or chicken.

Crossing the bridge noodles came from a legend of a faithful wife who hand delivered her noodles to her husband for lunch. She discovered that despite crossing a bridge or many bridges, a layer of animal fat/oil covering the surface of the soup kept the noodles warm. Chinese will do anything to make sure dishes are warm when served.

The soup was good and tasty. There was a strong umami factor. The chili oil and flakes added to the intensity. However, the beef is chewy. Not a negative factor for those who love to chewed on their meat and feel like a carnivore.

There are quite alot on the menu and it will take some time to go through all of them.
