Lingshui Sour Noodles

Introduction & Highlights

Delicious and with plenty of history to reveal, Lingshui Sour Noodles date back to the Qing Dynasty and have been part of many a celebration in Hainan.

At a festival or during breakfast, the rice noodles - typical of the southern county of Lingshui - are always a central feature of the local menu, which you’ll soon discover if you head to this part of the island.

Should you enjoy sweet and sour food at the same time, this is the dish for you. It is this unique mix of flavour that makes Lingshui Sour Noodles stand out from other recipes that you’ll come across. And, of course the mouth-watering seasonings, which you can choose and add on according to your personal preferences, also add to its uniqueness.

If you’re looking to get the full taste experience of real Lingshui Noodles, a hot and filling delicacy, make sure you eat them while they’re still warm. You’ll also want to make sure they include vegetables, coriander, vermicelli and leeks.

You can also add dry squid and other seafood you like, alongside roasted peanuts and oil used to give an extra layer of flavour. A vibrant and colourful dish that will be difficult to forget.
