Cook’s Note

  1. For most of Chinese style mei fun dish, we recommend Taiwanese thin rice noodles (新竹米粉). You can try to search it in local Asian stores. If that variety can not be found, this Vietnamese Rice Stick can be a good substitute. It is quite important to know that the cooking method or time might be slightly different based on the brands. Remember to read the package firstly.
