The story began in 1985 with a fisherman with the surname Hong whose family migrated to Fucheng from China’s Zhangzhou. He made a living catching fish. The sea is usually very rough between the Tomb-sweeping Festival and the Mid-Autumn Festival each year so this became known as the “Slack Season” because the fishermen couldn’t go out to sea.
To make a living during the slack season, Hong began selling noodles. His noodles had a unique taste and were quite popular so he eventually began selling them full-time. In the beginning, he carried his noodles on shoulder poles and sold them in the streets, so he named it. Slack Season Tan Tsai Noodles.
