Kuiyuan Guan is a noodle shop with a history. It was founded in 1867 by a businessman from Anhui province. It became famous with students taking the Provincial Imperial Examination as the food was supposed to bring good luck. Times have changed, but it’s still always packed. Kuiyuan Guan is also famous for their unique combinations, one of which being the pian er chuan style—a must eat for any local. This place stays busy. Not a seat is empty and many hungry people have to wait. Bowls of noodles range from 16-388 RMB (that’s not a typo).
