Where is all the rice?

So, I thought we'd be eating rice day in, day out in this country. This is where rice originated from, isn't it? I thought it was THE staple. To my dismay, we've only really had rice maybe 25% of the time. Noodles seem to be the big thing here. They have them in all shapes and sizes, hot and cold, spicy and not. Not sure if this is a western China thing but I'm hoping we get more of the steamed white stuff in the east.

Those noodles were a little spicey ... Beef Noodle Soup. Seems to be everywhere in this corner of China! Think I'm starting to wimp out on the spice though ... sticking more to the none spicy stuff nowadays. :P

Never tried those bon-bon chickens but they were everywhere in Chengdu!
