Eight Cafe – Guilin Mifen (Monterey Park)

DSC01445.jpgThere are more and more regional Chinese eateries in LA. My friend told me about this hole-in-the-wall noodle house in Monterey Park that can eat Guilin Mifen (Rice Noodle from the southern Chinese province). Their noodle are famous for being very smooth. I remember eating it long ago when I was a child traveling with family there. I got the Dried Rice Noodle with Simmered beef, DELICIOUS! The beef are tender and very flavored (especially the tendon parts). the long beans are pickled, peanuts fried and sweet glazed. The sauce is spiced + vinegar + soysauce with tons of garlic. Unfortunately I was sick that day (went to see doctor just before) and I cannot eat any stimulating food. I have to resist myself not ordering any of the chili items nor reaching my hand to the many bottles of tempting looking chili sauce. I bought a pack of Guilin noodle later in market and tried to make this myself.

    I think I ate too much Macadamia nuts…^^;; After I came back, I was sicked with fever, upset stomach…so time to cleanse by Chinese medicine!

    The noodle we made are quite good, though we couldn’t have made the beef as tasty. We just install a water filter at the sink so “washing noodle with cold water”‘s cleaniness is no longer a concern ^^.
