What They Ate... Ashlyanfu Noodles

Karakol has a large population of Dungan, an ethnic group of Muslim Chinese found in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and the Xinjiang province in China. Their cuisine combines Central Asian cooking and Far Eastern spices. 

Ashlyanfu Noodles: A light delicious Dungan treat. A mix of cold wheat noodles and gelatine bean noodles drowned in a vinegary sauce. Cold vegetable broth is then added and topped with a bit of red chili paste. Eat it with the locals on a bench at the market, and soak in the oriental atmosphere.
