What is “Crossing the Bridge” Noodle?
Crossing the Bridge Noodle (过桥米线) is one of the most revered and well-known dishes in Yunnan Province, China. The history of this style of noodle dates back over 100 years, and was listed as an intangible cultural heritage of Kunming (capital city of Yunnan Province) in 2008. The dish is served with a large bowl of boiling hot broth, separate from the soup ingredients which are then added to create an extremely fresh aroma for the diner.
The origin of the name “Crossing the Bridge” is unknown, however one story begins with a scholar who was studying hard for his imperial exams on a small island. His wife would often bring him food, but found that by the time she had crossed the bridge to the island the soup would be cold and the noodle texture became soggy. So she decided to load a large earthen pot with boiling broth, and added a layer of oil on top to act as insulation to keep the broth warm while the noodles and other ingredients were kept in separate container. Once she ‘crossed the bridge’ to the other island, she mixed the two containers together, creating a warm fresh soup–now known as Crossing the Bridge Noodle soup!
