Any restaurants which serve food from the Guizhou area of China?

    There's a Guizhou stall in the fantastic food court at 41-82 Main Street.

    For a translation of the menu, see http://www.chowhound.com/topics/33964...

      If this were Guizhou, the top item on the menu would probably be horsemeat rice noodles, that's almost their signature dish. Have you seen the Taiwanese movie "My Rice Noodle Shop?" It's about Guizhou expats in Taiwan, and there are a couple of good shots of the proprietress of the rice noodle shop putting the dish together.

        Nope didn't see the movie, but thanks for letting me know about it. I'm going to get a copy and watch it.

          I saw the movie thanks. But they are Guilin expats which makes sense because the horsemeat rice noodles are famous there as well as their spicy sauce. That bridge they show by the rice noodle shop in Guilin is very famous.

      Can I ask why you are fascinated with Guizhou food? There is a large mix of minorities there.

        When I was in Beijing I had a couple of meals in a Guizhou restaurant. It was very interesting and good, but SPICY. Just wanted to sample some more dishes.

          FYI, Guilin and Guizhou are two very distinct places in China.

            Who said anything about Guilin?

              I think designerboy is saying the Taiwanese movie is about people from Guilin, not Guizhou.

                Ack, I'm busted, and I can't keep using "Senior Moment" as an excuse (can I?)

                The guailao will now write "Guilin is in Guangxi, Guiyang is in Guizhou" 100 times on the blackboarf.

                  I haven't seen the film, but I appreciate your mentioning it. Sounds well worth tracking down.

                  Yes, thanks for the clarification.
