Here’s one I got up at T&T Supermarket up in Canada in July. So what is Ho Fan? Well, they’re simply very wide flat rice noodles. Let’s check ’em out!
Here’s the import sticker (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To cook this one, put the noodle in 600cc of boiling water. Cook it for 2 minutes, then add the contents of the two sachets, stir, and it’s ready.
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has a slightly acrid scent.
The liquid base sachet.
A paste with a nice beef scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed beef and sweet onion doused with a little garlic salt. The noodles are very wide and flat. They’re the kind of rice noodles I like the best – not overly chewy, and somewhat comforty. What’s more there’s a decent amount of them. The broth is pretty good – has a great beef flavor and a bit of heartiness from the oil. Has a little of that sweet braised beef flavor a lot of Chinese instants have. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
