I like to eat noodles。
To work in Beijing after the miss the most is Suzhou, a bowl of noodles. The human stomach, feeling the most sincere, honest, and most loving home.
Previously, with friends, entertaining, even though the fond, last up to a bowl, I clean sweep will still be eaten, and frequently not even the soup left. Sick, no appetite, but wife brought a bowl of noodles, still able to eat one overturned. Now middle-aged, body fat, as the health meter, not presumptuous as it was before, but the feelings remain the same Noodle.
Originally thought to eat noodles is my personal favorite, but friends from outside to Suzhou, Suzhou, many people are assigned to eat a bowl of noodles. Met in Beijing, Jiang Kun, a famous performing artist in the comic, the first sentence is: When will ask me to eat your face in Suzhou?
Because the Noodle, Electrics a lot of friends. Xiao Wei Min is one of them.
The late 90s of last century, I often get to the stadium the same way to eat a bowl of noodles noodle shop Xing. Xing founder was just the same, not look, but do a bowl authentic, whether the original soup, toppings, ginger, noodles, are meticulous. Weimin small employers often vivid descriptions to explain the tradition, his face tells us how to inherit the old Suzhou basic characteristics of traditional surface techniques, how to Austrian kitchen surfaces, the Soviet Union to help the integration of the advantages of face, I know, this little There are a lot of knowledge in a bowl. Very close to my home away from the stadium, I become a frequent visitor to his noodle shop. He also called me a "friendly face. "
Later, he moved to the noodle shop Ka remaining Square, I went to the less.
Still later, he again moved to the Shi Quan Street noodle shop. Opening soon, I eat noodles, taste ever, the environment is more elegant. I asked Weimin, where the money? Tragic face he told me that he is bankrupt this, Zaguomaitie, desperate, almost all of the belongings sold, villas, cars, houses, son of a foreign language from high school back to an ordinary secondary school, also borrowed 200 million loan, the family goes back in the 20 square meters of old houses. He said his dream is to make pasta in Suzhou can on something presentable, but also to the face of culture in China has its own status. Because the high cost, and his face higher prices, but customers less, in a loss. I asked him, what can I do? He declined. He said he would carefully stick.
During the May Day this year, I returned to the Suzhou, but also, and wife to eat the noodles with the De-xing. Weimin brilliance, ruddy. He said that finally turn around a noodle shop. He said his dream is now to open a real surface Cultural Exhibition Hall, while eating noodles, while the face of China can enjoy the culture. He said he would like to further improve the Suzhou traditional pasta, the raw material for the introduction of pasta north of Suzhou, Suzhou soup with the recipe, so that nutrient enriched surface of Suzhou.
I was touched by his dream. I continue to admire such a dream, and constantly pursue his dreams. I told him that I want to help him "realize their dreams. " Of course, I have a little bit selfish, I hope one day to eat authentic in Beijing "with the De-xing" Suzhou surface.
Want to interview "with the De-xing, "the mind, just want to know as the "Suzhou Ten bowl, " one of the "Chinese snack, " identified by product, country "Chinese restaurant brand, " recognized business, the owner of the business management of production The curious, while the rest entered the Square is located in the Ka "with the De-xing" stores. Xiao Weimin owners of a "soup to boil in salted products flashy light was Jervis. plane known tenacity of raw and cooked boiled apply most emotion " of the door together can not help but spontaneously aftertaste of a Noodle can escape quite philosophical writing couplets, write Out to do surface and of life. Reporters the identity of an ordinary diners buy a bowl, ate look around the stores, clean and neat furnishings stores, a variety of hardware facilities are in place, the walls hung a number of celebrities and photos of the shop and various government Agencies and industry organizations awarded honorary medals shop. There are publications issued by the National Research on Food offers. Staff face and out very hard. And busy but not chaotic, see "with the De-xing" is quite a set of management, corporate internal strength also trained well. Reporters to "get with the Environment " that the identity of the owner Xiao Weimin, he readily accepted the reporters.
Work day, at noon in the vicinity of a bowl of meat and two-unit water surface. Over time, actually falling with the Soviet-style noodles, "the hygiene conditions." National Day holiday, seven days at home, not going out dinner, a la carte is get home, it is greedy to the last day came from the Noodle. Noon that day, my wife and I called two tricycles to the old house, call the parents to travel to eat with Tongdexing Noodle.
Wife accompanied parents to pick into the empty tables in the hall to sit down, I looked at the wall credited into account station sample mask to buy dozens of chips. To the white soup bowls, bowls of red noodles. Point dozen Noodle toppings, all placed a bridge table. Also with the Jidie ginger, radish sauce, spicy cabbage for refreshing. My father and I eat red soup, mother and Wife pale mouth is to eat white noodles. The soup is very clear light caramel, imported delicious and refreshing. Noodle somersault tasty nutty. Stew meat and fat but not greasy, and of the entrance, pure meat. Explosive concentration of oil red fish sauce, crisp outside, energy, medium sweet and salty, rich and delicious. Luya qualities of flavor, delicious and pleasant, lo rich. Well as eel paste, kidney, shrimp, assorted meat, assorted elements of what, to help Su have also been deep cooking essentials, color, smell and taste everything in place. Four spent less than 100 dollars.Exhilaration
Su-style noodle soup, bowl of soup that much attention. It is about the same Tongdexing's bone soup with eel, green scales plus first-class pig brewed by the two slow fire. No wonder the Noodle eaten, not that Tom has a little muddy, entrance delicious and refreshing, mellow taste. Quit his mouth after eating, non-MSG, chicken hanging out hard. That store owner from Zhuhongxing hair treasure, view the revitalization of Lima and several other masters learn the hands of the cheats. Thus a bowl of noodles with Tongdexing, retains the basic flavor of the traditional Su-style noodles.
In high spirits when we eat, suddenly all of a sudden rush from the outside to a dozen of the older and grace of the people in our side sat around the table. I saw the boss respectfully with Tongdexing group of people around, is offering each other cigarettes is delivered tea, patiently describes all kinds of toppings on their faces with eleven questions to answer, is busy round and round.
Because I am a frequent visitor with Tongdexing, and that the boss can be considered met. After quickly ready to see him just walk, he will be curious to ask these people's backing. The boss said, not without pride: these people who are not Chinese Academy of Sciences, is the ministerial level, there is the military uniform is a deputy commander, and that long hair is a famous painter. They are invited to attend the centennial celebration of one. But they obstinately declined the hotel's banquet, I was attracted to the taste of a bowl of noodles here, you say I can not properly serve them?
This bowl of noodles or old smell, eat to feel at home, people feel a little bit back to the previous time. A bowl of noodle soup worth the money a few, have made a group of students so worrying about their homes, make over seventy two years old so praised sigh, it means that in addition to the Noodle, I think that is culture.
Recently, Suzhou snacks "with Tongdexing" Noodle Restaurant owner, personally remove the last ten years established a chain of signs. He said, "If the chain even without the lock of the difficulties encountered, as retracted 'fist', for the next punch ready to play more exciting." This is a word in one fell swoop, in the chain, joined the business of old, the cause no small vibration and different degrees of reflection, but also the people of my generation to get of fans and commended.
In recent years, many names snack may be in Suzhou KFC, McDonald's and other famous foreign chains under the influence of the "bigger and stronger," the boom in business have opened chain stores, clapped and welcomed the general public, "the century-old "open to the" doorstep. "However, when a delicious steamed dumplings with famous, popular a hundred years old, opened 75 stores in succession, but there is a Village in my house warm and before the grand opening, offer bargain three days, I gain an advantage, to taste the fast, buy a few home cage. Opened one look stunned, collapse of steamed, like a round cake; bite, the juice is there, the taste and the "century-old" Head Office far! After the soup, ravioli, and other famous "chain store" experiences within the same, it is angry.
I ask this question with friends within the industry. He said that many of the chain stores most of the fees paid to Head Office, shop front to accept a unified management training, to teach the production process; shop after the chain stores is independent accounting, autonomous, self, free play. That is, many chains century is "even" instead of "lock." So on aliasing, bad. The Noodle, for example, or soup, or toppings, Head Office can not take, and their production, to reduce costs, increase profits ---- steal power by feeding, contrary to "the century-old" production "secret. "Despite the chain's store signs, and decorative appearance with Head Office the same, but the substance of the store how this bowl will be the "century-old," the head office of the same?
I applaud the "with De-xing" boss "even without the lock off the shop to build the flagship development" thinking and behavior. Although the people of my generation is an outsider, can not tell a large set of theories, but also know how to light a "hundred years" famous brand, would like to earn money-ray, optical a KFC, McDonald's uniform shop signs and decorations, there is no "Woodpecker" (Attorney members) visited unannounced visits, "magistrate" vigorous enforcement, not a set of effective management system is well run and franchise chain stores, can not escape the nominal, closing closing the hook. I see the fame generation and public consumption is not the store signs, but by real and affordable, taken only last a second on the "vote with their feet "---- bye!（文杰）
Su-style noodles in the overall aesthetic style, the emphasis is on fine, clever, fine, elegant. In the face more than the selection of embryos to Longxumian, mainly in the rough, because the surface of embryos as detailed, so the taste of soup can instantly penetrate to the surface, the purpose of doing so is to enable the surface to eat more tasty in the mouth. Configuration in the soup, and more use of eel bones, green snail shell, bones, and then the appropriate broth to stew accompanied by synthesis. The reasons are: eel bones, animal bones out of the soup brewed with a low-fat, high protein, calcium and activity of various amino acids, which form the composition of the natural flavor, do not get angry after eating, no dry mouth, and it is Without any artificial additives, natural nutrients, but is very rich in nutrients, in line with modern people are pursuing the concept of dietary and nutritional balance.
Su-style noddle of toppings, placed great emphasis on modeling and cooking methods. Purpose is pay attention to color, smell, taste, giving the time of enjoying, the United States have both feelings. For example: "white soup Luya surface ", in which the duck is another on a small dish, with the end to the guests and the table surface, do so in the face of industry known as "topping the bridge. " It allows the guests eat noodles and toppings separately so Flavored and toppings are not tainted with the taste, to layered effect. Second: the punch bowl in the Luya surface, put some amount of green onion and egg Pisi, so not to eat a bowl of noodles, first brought back the appetite, rich colors, the level of fullness. Once again, Soviet-style noodles in a lot of stress eating, a lot of flavor with little material, played a role in icing on the cake. For example, take the time to eat a small dish of yellow noodles in ginger and pour a little vinegar, eating a small port on the side eating ginger, feel a fresh mouth, lifted the spirit. Moreover, stomach and keep warm ginger has the power, more to prevent dental and detoxification effect. This is the charm of Su-style noodles - fine, clever, fine, elegant.
North-South regional differences, forming a structure and style of food culture different from the so-called "party of soil support one person. " But since ancient times: "food to face first, face to taste fresh, " outside of the North and the noodles are also distinctive in Suzhou. First they made ??the surface, the overall style gives a rough feeling, to use more small-width side surface of embryos, it tastes strong and smooth, but the flavor of soup noodles is difficult to penetrate. In the preparation of the soup: re-color, heavy fragrance, to give people the feeling of thick oil red sauce, more affected by labor, men, export-oriented character of the people favor, but the scope of its large area of marketing limitations. Because most people in pursuit of the modern light is on, the overall diet, tastes have undergone a fundamental change, this is a high degree of civilization of contemporary material consequences. Moreover, the North made ??soup like heavy oil, heavy blue, boiled in soup, and not pay attention, love, stir, and thus relatively muddy soup, it tastes not cool, not long aftertaste of its Xianjie degree, lack of stamina It is more suitable for soup noodles consumption. North soup toppings, love and face together, or poured on the surface, commonly known as "cover water surface. " The advantage are: to improve the surface Xianjie degrees, but the lack of structured beauty.
For example: the noodles of Lanzhou, which is mainly used cooking beef soup, do the end of material, to do face to face with the beef, taste fresh, dense, but it is inevitable that cow smell, but its surface is used as the artificial embryo Hand Therefore, when the consumption elasticity, tenacity enough, especially refreshing.
Again, the Sichuan "dan dan noodles, "which with spicy, pepper, soy sauce, monosodium glutamate, so come prepared minced meat noodles, the use of noodles in the form. Feel more eating tasty, tasty, but easy to dry mouth, easy to get angry, southerners do not like.
For another example: Northern South "East Desk soup noodles", which is between the overall style of Sushi noodles and between the north side of its Noodle Flavored Su-type surface light, but also the north side of the muddy soup, which is due to system, soup and too simple, but it is in the use of its toppings "bridge" form, quite a number of stress.
Also, the popular folk "Tso Noodle" down do not have a charm: light dark reddish brown soup, sprinkle some chopped green onion, spicy oil Xu Lin, a small broad face, then "clam meat" stir-fried, then poured on the surface. Eating when you feel: noodles soft and tough, smooth, Flavored sauce, clam delicious juicy. It's Su-style touches and the work Noodle with different songs.
Another example: Taicang region mutton face, thick soupand mutton Sulan, hard fragrant fresh noodles fine, but it's not lamb Ningxia region, "mutton side" handled well, a little smell, it is still winter Sibu share.
The north-south thing of noodles, each has its own characteristics, eyes of the beholder, the wise see wisdom, but still can not do without customs, local culture, Suzhou Su-style people still prefer Noodle, or Kunshan Aozaomian. However, the distance should be aware of the differences in the narrow north-south, east and west of tastes in the assimilation, over the "other place Noodle" in Hong Local open competition, and have a place to fully explain the Noodle's production and sales, there is huge market potential.
The country faces a variety of colors: Sichuan's "casserole noodles " Shanxi "noodle, " Ningxia "hand Sargassum long face, " Yinchuan area of the "slurry water", Gansu Province of the "Health and steamed dumplings noodles "; Muslim Class "wild mushroom noodles ", "pigeon face","color egg noodles "; Southern region "home side ", "Assorted cold noodles"and" fried noodles","Button Face","knife noodles " "inch-node"; and ethnic minority areas, "rubbing surfaces, ""cutting surface ", "steaming noodles, ""pearl face, ""pulling faces","Jade Face, ""Health and boil noodles ", "dumplings Face, "" shrimp seed dumpling noodles "; also the northern areas, " Alternative D surface "----" fried noodles ", " offal of sheep, buckwheat noodles, "" thick stick surface, "" mixed fried noodles "is indeed"face Flourishing population ", practices vary, infinite mystery.
Noodle, the diet of a single show in the garden wonderful, she has a wealth of local culture, cultural content, scientific skills, and profound. For today's highly competitive market, we should consider: how to take Chinese fast food industrialization, large-scale operation of the road, lay the restaurant industry's national brand. A meaningful, is imperative.Group member of China Cuisine Association (Certificate No.: 667 Group)
Recently,Suzhou is known as "crazy Noodle", the same was made Hing Noodle Restaurant owner Xiao Weimin very act, he should automatically demoted back to technical posts, to concentrate on research and development work,the boss's job to others.This immediately aroused the interest of the persons concerned.
Although only one of the little people in the streets below, but with the Tongdexing Noodle Restaurant Xiao Weimin fame is not small. His noodle shop concept in Suzhou Street shopping district did a very high Ka remaining Square, decor spent a considerable price, the table is mahogany, and sit comfortably inside. Noodle better, the customer at his door every day, many people drive a car from afar. But noodles are noodles are still selling price is not known than those who do not sell your ordinary noodle shop. Xiao Weimin himself as obsessed with the Noodle point of research is known outside the industry in Suzhou "noodle crazy." "Soup products salty, boil too precious to vanity; plane known raw and cooked, boiled Shen inner tenacity," which is written by Xiao Weimin own couplets.
In recent years due to the development of research, to the northwest XiaoWeiMin mainly is the face of shanxi interested in northwestern shansi area, especially on the face, and muller DouMian, buckwheat noodles, unique flavor and nutrition, so he wants to improve through technology into jiangnan to. The decision more inspired his desire for technology research. Therefore want to let others when the boss, you still make technology.
The boss's job to others
XiaoWeiMin said let others when the boss, meaning is clear, that is not hire a general manager, but rather the search for a real sense of the boss.
XiaoWeiMin told reporters that his true idea is to focus on the research and development. Dad is parents is mom, like this can the things well. "Your energy is really limited, if so do, life is secured, won't feel DuoDa pressure, but to do great things again, need the help of others." XiaoWeiMin said, "I need a real boss, and I'm a cooperation, a total for great things, put the noodles do better."
XiaoWeiMin said three meanings, one is the face of the existing stores, this still need a great deal of energy; 2 it is to fight for the rich nutrition muller, DouMian, northwestern shansi area face of buckwheat flour, this needs to be introduced to suzhou technical research and development; Third, XiaoWeiMin think it necessary to strengthen the training of pastry, not simply make those who get rich quick training, but to cultivate with ideals, ethics, technology talent, and based on the pastry do a noodles. So big business, a person of course is not enough, in addition to fund energy reasons, the more major is art has specialize in, bent on the technology in the time when the boss is not can relaxed. So he wants to find a economic strength, the best with the ready-made team resources, intentional do a noodles to when the boss.Reporter River
Suzhou snacks, can say the suzhou has a long history in the catering industry is an important part of Chinese cuisine culture, also is the precious heritage.

Suzhou to develop the tourism industry, must develop Suzhou snacks industry. In addition to its social significance, there is great economic value.

Romantic words of Emperor Qianlong emperor under the south, night boating, gray dawn hours to ship iron bell off outside the city of Suzhou. After landing, the emperor really hungry belly. Happens to a small town Noodle Restaurant just opened the door, the Qianlong emperor stepped into the shop, the store quickly ordered two eunuchs immediately above, can not roll good noodles at this time, how to cook pasta? But it seems those aggressive, stores can not say, is anxious occasion, a glimpse of some of the table overnight with leftover Noodles, a smell, noodlehas gone alkali, sour.
——The story of old Suzhou.
I do not know the legend true or false, but the town of Omo indeed a long history of maple, it is said, there's the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom. In the Su-style noodle, this bowl can be described as the most distinctive.
White liquor, a tangy wine. This is because when the soup hanging addition to the usual meaty bones, eel bone, also joined the screws and the Lees. Omo most authentic maple town must use the rest of the Lees brewery do BRANDIED, alcohol dense, very rich. Later improved and gradually became joined the fermented rice production. Personally is a piece of stew meat. However, the different and common stew, this stew is also white. The practice of white meat simmered stew complex than usual, in addition to fire Cook, clean and completely outside the bloodbath in the stew was also unable to put soy sauce, simply relying on salt.
Maple Town Omo only the beginning of summer to the beginning of autumn supply between two solar terms. Scorch. Color white bowl, with a bouquet of maple town Omo most open appetite, eating came from sweat, one will find under the two axillary, slowly wind.
Such a good bowl of noodles, almost lost. Maple Town Omo in the 1950s, the number of the most famous view of the revitalization Noodle Restaurant. Later, Wufangzhai also started. But in the 1970s, maple town Omo on the market in Suzhou disappeared. It is said that the main reason is the town of Omo health requirements do maple particularly high summer season, accidentally, perishable food, stores reluctant to take on this risk. Fortunately, a heart picked up this craft. With Techint is the sole supplier of Maple Town, Suzhou, Omo's noodle shop, the boss Xiao Weimin called Suzhou surface of crazy. Is he back of the bowl of maple town Omo.
In 1996, Xiao Weimin in Palace Lane opened a noodle shop, there was Wufangzhai soup hanging to his shop teacher often eat noodles. The teacher, surnamed Li, his face pockmarked, sent the nickname Lima. Lima is not ordinary people, from concept to Wufangzhai revitalization, he did face a lifetime of living, many hand side of the unique skills of Suzhou, maple town Omo is one of them. Ordinarily unique skills should not be exposed, but Lima and Xiao Weimin noodles get that feeling to. May Xiao Weimin obsession with the Suzhou area moved Lima, Lima may also be afraid of when this disappeared Omo maple town. Anyway, do not know how a second to go, and Lima on the purse granted, the production of maple town Omo trick taught Xiao Weimin. Later Lima retired, Wufangzhai also stop the supply of maple town of Omo. Xiao Weimin will stand out, take over the mantle of the traditional arts area. Suzhou face a unique technique, and finally saved. (Of course, I heard that there are skilled instructors face hidden world, will do the maple town Omo. But no find a reporter.)
Maple Town Omo Fortunately preserved, but there are a lot of Suzhou was famous and the surface do not have to do. In view of the original before the home is called Ye Hongxing's noodle shop, specializing in Soviet-style small-width side. This surface and Longxumian not the same, one refers to the width, particularly nutty, taste good. The first time, Suzhou noodle shops are selling such small width of surface. In all the wide side of the face to sell a small shop, in the case of this Ye Hongxing best. Memories of the old face-off Wanggong Qi, Ye Hongxing facade of this small, selling only a small broad face, face the most outstanding is the toppings stuffed pork and pork different from the flat tip. Day morning, business is surprising good. However, this noodle shop gradually disappeared, and their descendants can not find it, no one brand inherited. Finally, very good on the Soviet side lost a little wide. Although there is now a small shop selling wide face, but no longer have the time of the flavor.
Those who can find lost things back Maple Town Omo continued success, "incense" of Xiao Weimin have the final say. He said the lost things just can not come back, come back later to find the key is how to continue. "There is kind of traditional Suzhou Huang called on both sides of pasta, has been lost and this surface was boiled fried, but fried fried only half of fishing into a bowl, accompanied by the shrimp are fried pork. Half white half of the gold surface, material is the shiny burnished, golden, pleasant, very superior Soviet-style side and this side I can do it, but I can not really into the market. "Xiao Weimin explained that to do such a surface is too busy to cook the guests had no time more, even if he can pick up all the traditional craft, he does not dare. "The traditional Su-style face, many are exquisite extreme, and impossible to become a popular food. If there is a place to accommodate them, perhaps in order to have room to pick up these lost things."(Wang Yu Tao Zhang Wenyan to )
In bridges, the soft wind, Suzhou City, crisp language, to have such a fascination with the Soviet Union to help the extreme Warren noodles. To the prosperity of this bowl, he not only put half the energy and effort, but also willing to sell all the houses, into "negative "......
Xiao Weimin Suzhou crazy side.
"Crazy Noodle", this is not my nickname for Xiao Weimin, but his fellow friends, patrons, Suzhou God called him. Crazy in Chinese has two meanings: First, the mind does not speak, the second is to describe the extreme fascination for something, such as the bookworm, Qinchi and so on. Xiao Weimin Emmanuel should be regarded as a figure head, stupid people will not stand out Daoguang Naruto restaurant market, to create a one "Chinese famous restaurant" to say crazy, that is because of his love of Suzhou that bowl too, so dry outsiders can not do anything out of a piece of the understanding, or antagonistic to the general operating rules bounds strange.
Suffering children, into the kitchen door.
Talking about business experience, Xiao Weimin sigh: I am 9 years old became the "orphan "---- Of course, this" orphan "is a play on quotes. The reality is, the year his parents divorced, he was "sentenced" to a pro-dad, and soon, my father gave him to find a "late (after) mother." Suzhou has a saying, "Mom, there are late night Dad," Xiao Weimin was sent back to the Changshu home. 14 years old, his home situation has changed, he had to return to Suzhou. "Good night mom fist men suffer, men's rice Nan Yan late mother." At that time, Xiao Weimin winter "standard clothing" is always a single pants, white shoes, big toe sticking out all year round, like the early years of shoes decoration, so the students left in the "tiger head" nickname. Director could not stand the neighborhood streets, forced from Xiao Weimin father's monthly salary deducted under $ 15, he was responsible for this suffering by the child's meal, haircut, a bath. Teacher Don arts teacher also particularly like the outstanding disciples, sometimes took him to the cafeteria to eat lunch, buy him this kind of food. This is probably Xiao Weimin initial contact with the "social dining."
Recalled the original poverty, Xiao Weimin said, bitter child has two results, one is overwhelmed by suffering, has become the dregs of society; the other is for the suffering of the temper. I was fortunate to become the latter.
In 1979, the state restored the college entrance examination, to coincide with Xiao Weimin high school. S middle class has served as the representative of his language into the examination room, the final gap to 13 points, get the job. Each admitted to some bizarre reason: enough to eat, review homework, it is often dizziness, vertigo, stomach called......
Entrance exam and unemployed for several months, Xiao Weimin Admission to move into the oil when the oil depot a monthly salary of 39.6 yuan guards. A few years later, set off a wave of community wind business, see many of my colleagues have resigned, "the sea", born with a restless impulse to follow the character of Xiao Weimin also resigned. At that time he has no "next home", while sleepwalk sell cigarettes, drinks, almost did not make a penny. By chance, he ran into a friend of a friend, people opened a wonton pastry shop, business is very prosperous. This allows Xiao Weimin become attached to the first power of germination catering dream. But the shop needs capital, Xiao Weimin is the lack of money. Thanks to the three old school, they are relying on the trust of many years of Xiao Weimin character, carrying his wife, each lend him a "huge sum of money "---- 1000 yuan. Holding this heavy 3,000 yuan, Xiao Weimin rented a 35 square meters of metal window dressing rooms, out of a small wonton noodle shop.
Things the world has a rule: look easier than done. Others how to do the wonton noodle shop how to make money, not to Xiao Weimin hands "inspiration", many customers came once, resolutely refused to eat the second time. Xiao Weimin not know the craft, to the bookstore to buy books to read, to Suzhou, "Great Park"look for food predecessors. However, his first store in support of or in 9 months after the close end.
Ups and downs ups and downs a bowl of noodles.
In 1994, Xiao Weimin married. His hand was only 5,6 thousand dollars savings, the couple has to eat, but also raising children, how to do Xiao Weimin like: still have to open restaurants, a dry line to the low threshold is relatively easy to make ends meet, and secondly by the previous shop, really on the restaurant had a feeling this business. The less money, site selection difficult, and every day, Xiao Weimin able to ride a bike shop to find the place, and today the east, west tomorrow, pay attention to the road when the right to search when the road left, not every Menlian missed. Coincided with the height of summer, the body's sweat not broken, Paozhaopaozhe, the head of a layer of sweat base shell, which are to take the sweat does not want to take out. In this way, looking for consecutive two months, the final selection of seven finalists can. In Xiao Weimin carefully observed among them, weigh, compare what better occasion, another shop, or an opportunity, myth-like in front of him.
The shop from Xiao Weimin place to live only 5 minutes away, fast noodle shop called Fantasy, business is not good, Xiao Weimin pass every day but did not see eye to it. That day, Xiao Weimin find rest and come back when you shop, where accidentally ran into a former colleague. Two-chat turned out that one out of clothing stores is the boss Lee, and colleagues came to help him Kandian. Xiao Weimin food shop that is looking for that one beat hands colleagues: Mr. Li was going to sell this shop, why do not you take over it. Xiao Weimin repeatedly shook his head: I do not have much capital.
Ordinarily this matter settled on so, who knows, next day the boss who has allowed Lee to call Xiao Weimin colleagues. After two to communicate, Mr. Li said, I work in the clothing, but do not love to eat noodles noodle restaurant, shop or do you do this. Do not pay the rent first, you do a month, then my conscience told me how much profit or loss how much we can do again determined.
This is really a big pie out of the sky, Xiao Weimin immediately took over the store with a lover. Done for a month, loss of three thousand. Xiao Weimin looked sadly find Mr. Li also shop owner Lee laughed, a loss of 3,000 out of me, you try for two months, of course, then you had better lose yourself a loss.
Although sentenced to a "reprieve", but noodle business is still no improvement, then, the second myth was born ---- the day, Xiao Weimin facing the deserted entrance hall in a daze, the door came a Grandfather, Xiao Weimin Ying came hurriedly ate his face. Grandfather Duanqi Wan to eat a mouthful, immediately under cold face: you learned arts do? Xiao Weimin honestly said no. Grandfather asked: do you shop area and why? Xiao Weimin, said: family. Grandfather bowl of a place: surface made of this, sell, breed family paste what port? Bowl of the world wide face of science can be big, do not study with a teacher how the line! Xiao Weimin said, of course, would like to coach, who is to introduce you? Masters smile: the master far away, in sight.
Originally, the old master named Mao Name treasure, 16 years old to enter the Soviet Union to help face Shoppes Zhu Hongxing apprenticeship, won the Soviet Union to help soup it completely, after the "Down to the Countryside Movement " was sent to the outskirts of Kunshan, Suzhou, a well-known Austrian Museum of kitchen surfaces , But also enjoy the essence of the Austrian kitchen surfaces. Today, great talent, he has already retired, enjoying their later years. Xiao Weimin a, busy pulling the old master, he must come to the store to help. Master Mao said, can help to pay the wages per month 2500.
2,500 yuan! This is Cantonese chef's salary was also Xiao Weimin half of operating funds. Xiao Weimin bite the bullet and agreed. The master hair really extraordinary skill, noodles make very authentic. But the old master is very conservative, so that key parts, such as sugar, salt bucket down to the meat sauce, always an excuse to go to Xiao Weimin expenditures and do not let him know the ratio. Xiao Weimin know, to learn authentic noodles skills, must get their hands on such information. Master not to see, he quietly turned to the number of bins used hair master, where the salt lost bags of sugar bags, take a look at how to do a bucket of stew meat and how much to use, copy and then follow this ratio.。
The first barrels of meat secretly copied out, who knows, black terrifying, salt was dead, not at the master hair look and taste to do that! Later, Xiao Weimin know, afraid of being stolen hair arts master, every time stew a few bags when they get more and spices, with the remaining oil, salt pot and then rewind. This time several Xiao Weimin, when Mao's master before the operation, he quietly reached into the bucket of soy sauce sugar salt shaker, you measure how much material left inside, the master operation finished, he measured how much quantity, and then refuse The number of fish out of packaging bucket pocketed a cut to the road right amount of seasoning. Hard work pays off, two months later, when he and his master parted hair, it is already the master of the trick Cheats "steal " their own hands.
Plane crazy career.
Surface of delicious, Fantasy vegetarian guests gradually his door, business to flourish by the decline, Xiao Weimin charter is also a matter of course under this noodle shop. The experience made ??him realize that product quality is the lifeline of the research began fascinated noodles, soup, toppings, and with their food culture, step by step into the "crazy face"list.
Xiao Weimin found traditional Su-style uppers Flavored great, but face a shortage: a long time to cook easily broken, easily taking the summer base, pantothenic acid. He tried to join in and the surface of the egg white and salt when, after several ratio test, a complete solution to this problem.
Suzhou Noodle House at half the flour noodle in two: one pink and two powder. A flour noodles slippery, but less gluten Road, two flour noodle texture is rough. Xiao Weimin After wrestling with the support of the noodle factory, to a powder and two powder according to the proportion of Panax opened mixed, made ??out of both plane and tender noodle.
Su toppings is an important part of uppers, Xiao Weimin it has deliberately been improved. Fried fish such as the traditional red color is very heavy, Xiao Weimin was diluted to the dark reddish brown to make it more modern light, healthy eating concept.
Even by the Soviet Union to help, so pass the soup kitchen Austria, Xiao Weimin also carried out its reform: using the Soviet Union to help soup art hanging face, absorbing the delicious Austrian kitchen surfaces, subtract the appropriate heavy oil, and add a small amount of Cantonese learned from the master to the Cantonese-style soup brine, so that both produced their own to maintain tradition, unique characteristics.
Feng Town, Suzhou has a long history of large area features the classic seasonal summer noodles, but because of the high hygiene requirements, the production is difficult and not easily stored, 70 years after the end of the last century has been almost lost in the Suzhou area. Xiao Weimin visited several times, found a successor has been retired to Master Lee, Wuxi, store it in their own resurrection......
Jiaoren thousands of people to ignore the sound, faces we not invited. Xiao Weimin the noodle quest for fire, diners flock to year after year to improve efficiency, and he began to consider creating their own brands. November 1997, Azusa Street in Suzhou ten new store will be opened, Xiao Weimin turned many days in the dictionary, since it is ultimately under the name of a loud - with the De-xing. Three words of the name, the last word is "Xing", which is named Suzhou Noodle House unwritten rules when; so called "get the same", is Xiao Weimin hope that through this bowl, so selling noodles and noodles Be prosperous together.
Xing Xiao Weimin have created the same, with the De-xing for Xiao Weimin win the honor. Although the urban renewal, the first operation with the De-xing for 10 months only to be forced to relocate heavy sheets, but a new home in Suzhou, famous people, fame is growing even bigger heart: too Xing was awarded with the "famous Suzhou Mark ", "Chinese food brand "the title; business white soup stew of white meat surface was selected as the" Chinese snack "; Xiao Weimin himself because of outstanding performance has been the municipal government awarded the " Venture Star "," excellent individual businesses Entrepreneurs ", etc, was elected as the fifteenth session of the NPC Pingjiang District.
Get even with the reputation of Xing spread abroad. In 2001, the famous Japanese TBS TV program "the world to visit in mind, " produced a file called "successor of the Soviet Union to help soup, "the documentary, including a set that is a young Japanese came to China to learn traditional skills back to Japan to flourish . Results, studying the same site selection was Xing, Xiao Weimin master is chosen. A week after another, Japanese disciples ate, lived with the shooting followed Xiao Weimin. In the next set when shooting the film, TBS Television in Japan please turn Xiao Weimin, live television performances of 9 consecutive days, caused a sensation in the local. Japan's mainstream media, "Asahi Shimbun, " said, "Mr. Shaw's side enjoy a great enjoyment of life. "
At the same time, the other in Suzhou Jia Fang Xing Restaurant Street headquarters was also opened with welcoming. Renovated antique shop, the business area second to none in the local noodle shop. Opening day, many leaders and colleagues have rushed to join,,,,,,
The heart of God for its fair for the plight of the year a child laid the golden way of getting money. Well, not always the status quo of the Xiao Weimin this status quo will no longer face the Soviet Union to help a wide soup thick add water, a new "spice"?
I still dream of the future.
Northerners eat noodles, southerners eat rice, which is inherent in many people's impression. As everyone knows, Southerners are eating pasta, and eat very fine attention to. South early in the "Four Diamond"- wonton, fried dough sticks, milk, noodles, three-quarters of pasta. The local saying goes, "food to surface as the first " famous writer Lu Wenfu pen gourmet Suzhou, even willing to get up early to catch the noodle "head soup" pasta can be seen in people's minds Status.
However, as in the flourishing with the De-xing, the Soviet Union to help the overall state of noodle is not optimistic. First, some operators of quick success, joining the proliferation, resulting in decline in product quality; the second is the increasing costs associated with so small profit margins of the noodle industry is difficult to support. In recent years, the old Suzhou Noodle House had set off a pressure for the rent For the collective withdrawal of the wave of urban centers. But there are exceptions, such as "Ajisen"and other lucrative foreign monks.
Xiao Weimin frown, for their own business future, and to a larger bowl of "Su uppers. " He had been abroad, know the taste of raw material on the martial arts of the Soviet Union to help Ramen noodles is not in the ocean below the surface can also be a ram, two pieces of lean meat, half of eggs, a few slices of seaweed, why put people bowl to To the value of twenty or thirty million, and only sell to us four or five dollars? The key is the environment and services are very different - the Soviet Union to help face the traditional mode of operation is a small door shop small capital, so that stores can not help but bring a narrow, cluttered environment, and various defects. Good service could be more fan Chen, in order to save costs, and some shops even canceled commonly known as "waiter"and sent to face attendants, so that customers "do it yourself ample food and clothing. "
Xiao Weimin began to dream: to help face the Soviet Union should not always be "low class. " With economic development, should also be eating noodles "to feed their families, " rise to the "leisure" or "feed their families + Leisure. " If the Soviet Union to help build such a fine noodle, noodle soup is beautiful, the environment is elegant, the door has small bridges, ears have Pingtan, this opera background music, there is the tradition of the decorated wall and Suzhou's old photos, surrounded by Angela benevolent people laughing attendant,,,,,, have to worry that the Soviet Union intended to help win foreign Ramen noodles are not fighting! After several twists and turns, he Shiquan Street to find a favorite shop: two-storey building, 628 square meters of business area, store street pillow River, quiet, and dreams of the shops in good agreement. But to offer such a shop next, together with the necessary high-end renovation, you need a lot of money, this money come from?
Xiao Weimin is a must do everything possible to have a dream into a reality of his people, he made ??a series of surprise move: first the back five noodle franchise chain, and then sell the house, the family back to the early years living in 28 square M bungalow; sell cars, electric bicycles travel began, and even sold the house more than 1,000 yuan worth of all possessions, further bank loans 200 million, raising a total of 5.9 million yuan, the total investment to the construction of noodle quality . At the same time, he widely to battle to the community, hope and insight to cooperate, not only to share the same partner may Xing intangible assets, also has overall responsibility for store operations, himself relegated to second-line, shop and go to the good Product development director.
A ripple! News, almost all people know Xiao Weimin said the move does not understand: I remember a few years ago have been offering food and beverage industry, Fong Ka remaining, he happens out there a large store; and later had to just a few sewage charges , braving the danger of offending the powerful sued the Environmental Protection Agency; Now, this "crazy face" but also not a crazy hair?
Voices of doubt in the end of 2007, with the noodle shop was open for business Xing fine, but it is high-end restaurant environment, an area of ??2.8 square meters per class, more than the traditional noodle shop more than doubled; door greeter at a special; As soon as seated, waiter went up there to pour tea, appetizer, send the above spectrum,,,,,, of course, where the surface is also better than the traditional Soviet Union to help you on a noodle shop, twice. So, it's hardware and software environment, its mode of operation, its price, and consumers in the community caused much controversy, Suzhou Daily, Suzhou series of television and other mainstream media also make the relevant reports. Xiao Weimin once again brought to the cusp of public opinion.
Not the end
Spring March, silky drizzle, I walked into the boutique with the De-xing noodle.
Hemispherical dome of the lobby, winding streets of the bridges, closed and semi-enclosed private room, semi-translucent flowers cover the window, the Ming-style tables and chairs dark yellow, light green tea utensils so,,,,,, People think of the Suzhou gardens, an antique in the extent, revealed Zen. Xiao Weimin came forward, his face less to see him seven years ago when the initial impulse, more serenity and calm. Asked about the operation, he was honest: the semi-casual style of the shop layout and several times more than the traditional noodle house service staff, but also because of the Soviet Union to help local people face the traditional concept of consumption, noodle shop has been in deficit every day a thousand January 3 million. I ask not wait for details of the day to "eliminate"3 packs of cigarettes he lit a cigarette and hurried to it, "not too bad as a lawyer, "the eloquent, can not wait to talk about a new dream -
He has an inspection tour to Shanxi pasta, grains in particular where the pasta pasta heaven indeed. If you can Shanxi pasta and soup together in Suzhou, north of Southern flavor, will be able to create not only rich in nutrition and taste the excellent new varieties of pasta;
A lot of types of cooking school in China, but so far there is no Soviet Union to help a professional pastry school. If the establishment of such a school, will have a good social and economic benefits;
Japan's supermarkets and insurance Ramen instant noodles, Chinese supermarkets, only fried instant noodles, instant noodles is not domestic insurance-type. If the Soviet Union to help surface as the basis for scientific research, into the insurance side of vacuum packaging to market, will create a new consumption hot spots. If the other side of the old Soviet Union to help toppings, such as Hong Men meat, white meat stew, Luya, blasting fish, all can be carried out in accordance with this idea of ??industrial production;
Even, and even the support of government departments and engage in a permanent "place of traditional Chinese art display name snack Expo Center. " Here, for a variety of pasta snack food exhibition, marketing, research and raw materials, processing machinery, food and beverage containers, pasta communication skills, academic study, can do the logistics center can be a teaching base for cooking pasta, or even Tourism can be a bright spot in an industrial......
No, Shaw boss. Dream into reality takes time and conditions, not to mention these things not by your own power to become capable, it needs to industry colleagues, government departments and even the whole society co-operation and support. We'd better be realistic, think about how survive the current difficulties it!
Xiao Weimin faint smile, I believe this will be successful professional noodle shop through its formative years, I believe that consumer awareness of people will progress, I believe the Government's vision of leadership and potential partners. In fact, the store's opening, has been a part of my dream into reality, and now, failure or success has been important to me ......
Xiao Weimin turned away, behind, is askew in his famous couplet written by:
Light goods salty soup, boil to Vanity Fair is meant to be;
Plane known raw and cooked, boiled tenacity apply most emotion.
