Super famous Suzhou noodle brand that finally made the trip to the big city in late 2018. The noodles are excellent and in high demand. Yu Xing Ji has a strict opening schedule, which is ostensibly 7.30am-2.30pm and 5-8pm, but show up at 7.15pm and they’ll just stonewall you. What’s worse is that the liang mian huang, their standout noodle, sells out early. It’s close to the quality of the Suzhou original, though the stock, the thing people eat Suzhou noodles for, is a little weak in comparison. A plain bowl of noodles with a slab of braised pork belly (the fengzhen darou mian), the default order for a Suzhou noodle house, is 28rmb.
