There is a famous saying about Chinese martial arts: “Southern fists and Northern kicks”, which refers to the difference between these two styles.

Luosifen, originated in the city of Liuzhou, Guangxi Province, is one of the typical Southern rice noodles. It is famous for a special stinky smell. The noodles, made from “old” crusted rice and cooked in boiling water, have a very chewy texture.
