What happens when you find yourself with 20 American university students in a pricey Shanghai office tower and in need of a quick and cheap meal before heading to the next appointment? Find a Muslim noodle shop and persuade them to set up tables and stools on the sidewalk and serve us delicious plates of freshly made noodles.
I used to have a colleague who suggested that one of the main roles for foreigners in China was to provide entertainment for the locals. We certainly did our fair share of that today!
And as an added bonus, we got to watch the chefs making fresh noodles right beside us.
Did I mention that I LOVE being back in China??
