Ming Ji (明记)
Keep going straight from Jinjin Noodles and you’ll see the famous Ming Ji, whose rice noodles with beef offal are renowned throughout Guangzhou.
The soup is quite a heavy and savoury, when paired with crisp sweet and sour turnip cubes, the flavour of the rice noodles is strong without being overpowering. Local people have been coming here for over 30 years. If you don't like standing in line, you’d better come as early as possible because there are always long queues.
