His wife would have to cross a bridge to get to the island to bring meals to him. Due to the long distance, his meals were cold by the time they reached him. By accident, his wife discovered that a greasy chicken soup would stay warm longer. What’s more, fresh ingredients such as seasonal vegetables, fresh meat and so on would become edible when put into this kind of boiled soup. Since his wife crossed a bridge, the rice noodles made in this way were named Cross-bridge Rice Noodles. Now Cross-bridge Rice Noodles has become a well-known dish both in China and abroad.
