Well, since we're on the topic of food, we clearly can't NOT mention the noodles.
Our favourite noodles were re gan mien (meaninglessly translated as hot/dry noodles), and I believe most of Wuhan shared our opinion. They had a unique peanut flavour to them (via the sesame paste and oil) that we could not duplicate after our move to Shanghai - though Shanghai brought us xiao long bao (delicious soup dumplings), so I can’t complain too much.
As news of racism in the GTA spread faster than covid-19, good news also popped up, such as this story about people flooding to Wuhan Noodle 1950. When I read this article, I was excited to realize that I wouldn't need to wait until our next trip to Wuhan to eat our favourite noodles. Though I WILL need to wait until I can leave the apartment for more than a three hour dog walk.
In the meantime, I'm going to try my hand at making my own at home this week, and you can, too!
