Delicious Stir Fried Noodles, Served In A Heated Claypot
Lou Shu Fun (老鼠粉), also known as Silver Needle Noodles or Bee Tai Bak (米苔目) is a variety of Chinese noodles. It is white in colour and semi-translucent, made from rice flour and cornflour. Hence, the smooth and shiny texture. The noodles are stir-fried with a generous amount of minced meat and shiitake mushrooms, then served in a heated claypot. The claypot helps to retain heat so the stir-fried noodle remains tender and smooth in the claypot.
