Lao Shu Fen or literally - Rat Noodle or the silver needle noodles is one of my favourite noodles. When I google about this noodle, I found out that such a name was given because the shape of the noodles is long and tapered much like a rat's tail.
The noodles are made from ground rice flour but sometimes added with some cornstarch to reduce breakage during frying.
Anyway, here I am going to share this claypot LSF in Ipoh, my favourite at Jalan Che Tak ( Off Jalan Yang Kalsom ). It is nicely cook in the claypot using the most traditional way - charcoal. That's why one have to be patient when dine at this shop---need to wait for at least 20mins. The cook - an old lady will be taking her sweet time to cook this tasty LSF.
Here you go - the LSF simple looking - there is no dark soy sauce added like the ordinary one. There are minced pork, small prawns, bean sprout, spring union and the claypot was served, they will add 2 eggs inside.
Not only that, the chili sauce they served nicely blend with the hot tasty claypot LSF, writting this makes me feel mouth watering already.
Every patron comes here for their famous Lao Shu Fen. However,they also serve some fried noodles and chicken wings.
Give a try, you'll like the food!
