YueYang Hot-Dry Noodles-yue yang re gan mian

Okay, this is YueYang Hot-Dry Noodles recipe. Yueyang is located in northeast Hunan Province on the eastern shore of Dongting Lake, and it’s China’s second largest freshwater lake. One of their popular street food is this dry noodle and I love it because, it’s so easy to prepare and taste really good too.
