Oddity 5 Food called Ear Piece or Erkuai.

”Ear Piece” is the literal translation of erkuai, a local culinary specialty made of processed, cooked, compressed rice. Erkuai can be boiled, stir-fried (see below, centre), or barbequed (kao erkuai, see below L, R) when it usually comes in the form of a circular disc smothered in a deep red mala paste of chilli, salt and Sichuan peppercorns. Another popular manifestation is ersi, finely shredded erkuai in a noodle soup.


Ear piece is one of Yunnan’s special-flavor foods. It is made of rice in the shape of thin pies. Apart from ear piece, rice noodle and flat rice noodle are the local favorite non-staple food. It can be boiled or fried. The famous speciality “Teng Chong Dajiu Jia” is actually the stir-fried thick rice noodle.
