This special pasta snack came from the city of Xinzhou, then gradually spread across Shanxi.

It is made out of oat flour and gets its name from the round basket shape. The “kao lao” is a bucket used by farmers to fetch water or packing, which is made of bamboo sticks or willow twig.

The oat flour is kneaded and molded into a tubular shape on the floor, several inches long and thin, and light yellow in color. It is then placed side by side in a steamer. For eating, it is dipped in mutton or mushroom soup and is very tasty when fresh.
