SHIMIAODAO Yunnan Rice Noodle will be taking over the recently closed Planet Pizza & Subs location in Saah Plaza in Rockville (819 Hungerford Drive).
Crossing-the-bridge noodles has over 100-year history and it was listed as an intangible cultural heritage of Kunming city in 2008 to promote Yunnan food culture.
The dish is served with a large bowl of boiling hot broth and the soup ingredients. The soup is made with chicken, pork bone and seasoning, such as Chinese star anise and ginger. A layer of chicken fat is also used to insulate the soup and therefore keep it warm for longer.
These ingredients are separated. The soup ingredients are served on a cutting board or plate and include raw vegetables and lightly cooked meats.
Common ingredients include thin slices of turkey, chunks of chicken, chicken skin, strips of bean curd sheets, chives, sprouts and rice noodles. Once added into the broth, it cooks quickly with a layer of melted chicken fat and oil glistening on top.
Signage is already up, but we don’t have an opening date at the moment. There are various Shimiaodao Yunnan Rice Noodle locations across the country.
