Lao Xi Guan Rice-Flour Noodle House (老西关濑粉)
This noodle house was once recommended by the famous culinary documentary ‘A Bite of China’ bearing inscriptions autographed by the well-known food critic Chua Lam. As you might guess from the name ‘Rice-Flour Noodle House’, its signature dish most certainly is the rice-flour noodle, which is also strongly recommended by food critic Chua Lam.
A single rice-flour noodle is longer than a chopstick. The soup is thick, and minced preserved Sichuan pickles are scattered on top. You should eat the noodles with a spoon, because the noodles together with the soup will taste much more satisfying.
You can add barbecued pork or pot-stewed meat to your noodles if you like.
Rice flour water chestnut is another must-try. Big and chewy, for many locals it is one of the foods most memorable from childhood.
