  There is one kind of local food that I always miss when I was not in Xi'an, that is Liangpi (Cold Noodles). Liangpi is favored by local people especially in the summer. A bowl of chewy Liangpi with the red chili oil and vinegar, nothing beats that…

  凉皮无疑是陕西人的心头好。价廉味美,夏天热了,只想吃凉皮酸辣开胃;冬天冷了也想吃凉皮刺激一下清爽解腻。从路边摊到国宴,从西安到纽约,凉皮简直是全能型选手!

  There is a saying that Liangpi originates from Qin dynasty when people started to grind all kind of wheat into powder. That is to say, Liangpi now has a history of more than one hundred years.

  凉皮问世的具体时间已不可考。在民间传说里,第一碗凉皮诞生于秦朝。秦朝时,已经普遍使用研磨技术研碎谷物,饮食从"粒食"进化到了"粉食"。圆形石磨的使用在战国早期即已开始,到了秦汉已经比较成熟。

  There are basically two kinds of Liangpi in Shaanxi. One is made by rice noodles, the other is made by wheat flour noodles. With different sauce and flavors, Liangpi can be further divide into Qinzhen rice noodles, Hanzhong steamed noodles, Ganmianpi (chewy wheat flour Liangpi), and Liangpi with sesame sauce.

  凉皮主要分米皮和面皮两大类。除此之外还有用绿豆淀粉、蕨粉、魔芋粉等等为原料制作的凉皮,比较小众。人气最旺的几种凉皮是:秦镇米皮、汉中热面皮、岐山擀面皮和麻酱酿皮。

  Red chili oil is considered to be the most essential part of Liangpi, each restaurant has its own recipe for making chili oil. Below are some authentic Liangpi restaurants, see if you have already visited.

  凉皮的灵魂是啥?油泼辣子啊!对老陕来说,凉皮不放辣子和吃面不就蒜一样,万万不能忍!说了这么多,赶紧来看看西安凉皮哪家强。
