  1. The noodles with peanut powder looks intriguing. I would like to try that! I remember reading somewhere that those “Chinese donuts” (youtiao) re also eaten for breakfast, dipped in soy milk or rice porridge. I would like those wrapped beef rolls better if the beef wasn’t flavored with 5-spice powder. I do like how the wrapper looks and tastes though.

      Hi CC – Yeah, there was a couple next to us who were dipping the donuts in soy milk. I almost got some soy milk but changed my mind. They definitely need to be dipped since they are a bit flavorless on their own. The sesame noodles were pretty good, I liked the flavor even though it was spicy!
