6. Biang Biang Noodles
面 (biángbiáng miàn) is a testament to China’s humor, creativity, and love for food, all in one! The character for “” (biang) is the Chinese language’s most complex word, with 43 strokes to write it! Although there is a humorous story behind this word, the focus here is the Chinese food!
Biangbiang noodles are extremely wide and long and come in a variety of flavors. If you want to try the best, you need to travel to Xi’an, home of the Terracotta Warriors. Domestically, they are one of China’s biggest tourist attractions.
5. Little Dragon Buns
A pinnacle of Shanghai Chinese food, 小笼包 (xiǎolóng bāo) are similar to Chinese dumplings except one defining difference. Little dragon buns are filled with soup! Be careful not to burn yourself or make a mess on your clothes when eating these! Although some of the best made buns are in Shanghai, these delicious “little dragons” are easy to find across the nation.
