Best "Lao Shu Fen" in Miri

Mirians nowadays might forget Open Market Miri for breakfast after so many kopitiams (coffee shop) grow like mushrooms after rain.

Lo's Noodle Stall.

There is a particular stall at Open Market which is very well-known among the Mirians; Lo's Noodle Stall. Why is it so famous? Because it serves the best "lao shu fen" in Miri!

Best lao shu fen in Miri.

This is the lao shu fen I'm talking about. Unlike other stalls in Miri which is factory made, the lao shu fen here is home-made by the stall proprietor.

A closer look.

The lao shu fen is topped generously with minced meat, preserved vegetable and chives. Somehow, I think the mixture of these three ingredients make this bowl of lao shu fen rather special.

Most of the lao shu fen I've tried in Miri does not have preserved vegetable and also, the minced meat is just not as good as this stall. Secret recipe, maybe? ;)

Saliva dripping yet?

The texture of the lao shu fen here is just right. How to describe it? I think Q Q texture is the best word. Eat it with the minced meat, it tastes heavenly good.

A glass of kopi-c?

For those who haven't tried this lao shu fen yet, what are you waiting for? Head over to Open Market and try it yourself. However, make sure you reach there before lunch time because it is normally sold out then!

This is a MUST try! I can guarantee you will definitely like it!

GUARANTEE nice ah? Wah, very strong word oh. BTW, there are 2 sides of wet market isn't it? One side that also sells meat and vege and food stalls, and the other side .... actually never went inside but I saw from the road side that there are a few stalls inside. So which side is it?

Geez, so many "sides" in my comment.

kennymah said...

Hmm... that looks like something different from the usual lo shu fan I'm used to, home-made, huh?

Drooling again... Hahaha...

Kok said...

mim: Guarantee one. Not nice, come find me. haha! Oh, it's at the bigger wet market. The same row as Yu Lan Plaza. Got it?

kenny: Yaya, looks delicious hor? hehe.

eastcoastlife said...

Yummy! Where's the address?

This is dry version of lao shu fen. In Singapore, it's usually in soup.

alexander said...

Jewelle said...

You know, I have only came to know of Lao Shu Fen when I came to Brunei and for us, we get ours from a homemade seller who lives near our house too - very fresh!

One of my favorite Chinese dish.

Dry version actually taste good, only at this stall. :P
