Seremban – Dry Lou Shi Fun @ Yi Poh

Direct translations of “lou shi fun” (in Cantonese) would mean “rat noodles” simply because it resembles the tail of rats. Most lou shi fun is a little soft and would not be longer than 2 inches but somehow Yi Poh in Seremban seems to do it differently.

They are known for their long and tangy (just like spring) lou shi fun served in dry style. I was on my way to PD and thought would be nice to stop in Seremban for lunch, I head to Temiang and head to Yi Poh after reading about it on a few blogs.

I ordered the famous dry lou shi fun, their big wantan and a bowl of pig stomach’s soup. The dry lou shi fun is mixed with dark sauce topped with minced pork, spring onions and pieces of char siew (bbq pork) on it. I mixed them up and took it with their special spicy chili sauce and no joke, its really flaming spicy! The noodles are very chewy, tangy and takes a bit of effort to chew. Its as if they have little spring in each noodle and they are really long in size. The char siew is very dry to my liking, not sure if this is the local style. Its not bad, something special but I still prefer softer lou shi fun, hehe..but the price is ok RM3.70 for a big size bowl enough to feed two.

However, I really like their big wantan here, the wantan skin is really soft and the filling is very tasty! At 40 cents each, its reasonable. Don’t mind coming back for their wantan again ;).

The pork stomach’s soup is just ok, priced at RM2.70 for a small bowl. Taste is quite balance, not too spicy and yet tasty. But the pork stomach is a bit hard, I still prefer the one I had at Huen Kee where the pork stomach is still tender and soft :).

Overall pricing here is good, food is not bad and quite special with the springy, tangy noodles but I still prefer the softer ones but really love their big wantan.

    There is a good dry Loh Shi Fun in Kota Kemuning. They have beef balls and pork sausages. Give it a try.

    hi Meng, which shop is that?

  3. MENG Says:

    Sorry, I don’t remember the name.
    My mother took me there while I was on vacation in KL. I remembered that the shop sells loh siu fun with ground beef/pork only. They have pork sausage and beef balls. I think they are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. The shop faces a main street. There is a Public or May bank near by. Ask some people when you get there. The area is not big.

  4. CUPNOODLES Says:

    You got it. I thought it was really good. Did you know that Pun Chun from Bidor opened a noodle shop near by in May? They are famous for their duck leg wantan noodle soup. I tried their curry wild boar noodle. I liked it alot but the portion was tiny.

  6. CUPNOODLES Says:

    Imbi Road meat ball noodles should be the name of the shop you mentioned about lou shi fun, its a branch off from there.

    Yup I had blog Pun Chun in KK, http://makantrip.com/2008/06/kota-kemuning-bidor-pun-chun-noodles-house/
