As Zhongfu, the second phase of Sanfu this year began on July 28, 2014, Hangzhou residents are eating more noodles.

In the Chinese Lunar Calendar, Sanfu refers to the three 10-day periods that are predicted to be the hottest days of the year, which are called Toufu, Zhongfu and Mofu. Sanfu is between mid-July to mid-August, or what we sometimes call in English, "the dog days of summer".

The second phase of Sanfu, is traditionally a time for consuming noodles, as it is believed to help people sweat and relieve internal heat. Some time-honored noodle restaurants around China have increased their supply and launched new products.
