Zhēng Zīwèi

Noodles in Langzhong

This friendly noodle joint is run by Grace, an English teacher and zither (箏; zhēng) player, and her cook husband. No English menu, but Grace can make suggestions. If she’s teaching or performing when you visit, go for the niúròu miàn (牛肉面; beef noodles), with either hóng tāng (红汤; spicy soup) or local-style zhāngfēi (张飞; more of a stew).

Shanghua Jie is a continuation of Dadong Jie; this place is just uphill from the Huáguāng Tower.
