There is a famous saying about Chinese martial arts: “Southern fists and Northern kicks”, which refers to the difference between these two styles. When it comes to food, the North and the South also have different tastes. In the North, people prefer wheat noodles, while rice noodles prevail in the South.
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. Various ingredients are added to this dish: crispy peanuts, smooth wood ear mushroom, soft tofu skin, pickled green bean and bamboo sprouts. After finishing the noodles, have a sip of the tasty noodle soup and you will feel on top of the world.
