Dried noodles: bread-and-butter income for locals in mountainous province

Ngày đăng: 10/05/2016 .
Many families in the mountainous province of Lang Son have struck it rich from making dried noodles, a specialty of the region. Hoang Thi Bich, 44, said that her famiy has a long tradition of making dried noodles. The recipe was handed down from Bich's parents to her when she was 13.
"We have to get up at 4 a.m. to start making the noodles. Thanks to modern machinery, it takes us just three days to finish a batch," Bich said.
