This la mian restaurant run by a family from Linxia, just a few hours from Lanzhou, have made little renovation from the last restaurant that was obviously situated here. This is a different-feeling la mian eatery, lacking authentic menus, Hui ren in traditional dress, or even a 羊肉泡馍 on the menu, but featuring very comfy red, wooden booths and a friendly house cat that welcomes new customers. The awesome wooden deck outside provides a great place for outdoor summer dining.

The first time I came here I recall a soup slightly on the oily side and slimy noodles, eventuating in a rather unpleasant la mian experience. Yet happy to now report that on my return, the oil had been removed and, though lacking a meaty kick, the noodles were at least fresh and hit the spot.

The young gentleman, soon to return to his hometown, informed me with regret authentic Lanzhou la mian could not be found in Qingdao as locals preferred to use the medicinal angelica herb (or dang gui 当归) which, according to him, irrevertably alters the flavour. Thus the real question that needs to be answered are which restaurants in Qingdao use the 当归 and which do not.

This place can be found on Jiangxi Lu, just down from the petrol station near the corner of Fuzhou Lu.
