One day, when marching at the south foot of Qinling Mountains, the sunny side of the mountain with sufficient sunlight, the Emperor saw an old man in a farmhouse at the roadside hanging a row of vermicelli as thin as hair; his appetite was raised and asked the old man to cook the vermicelli. After cooking it thoroughly and pouring the peasant pickled cabbage soup onto the vermicelli, the old man presented the food to the Emperor who felt a tangy sour fragrance and thought the vermicelli was fine, tasty and refreshing.
