Guilin rice noodles, mifen, is the most famous and popular local snack in Guilin. It is pliable but strong, fragrant and mellow, and cheap. Local people consume it as breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Guilin rice noodles can probably be found within 100m of any town or city area in Guilin.

Rice Noodle Ingredients

Guilin Mifen's Ingredients

Local people love to add special condiments in Rice Noodles including chopped green onion, pepper, Sour bamboo shoots and pickled cowpea.

Plain rice noodles are white, and taste soft and smooth. They are made from rice flour starch, and come in mainly two shapes, round (米粉 mifen /mee-fnn/ ‘rice noodles’) and flat (切粉 qiefen /chyair-fnn/ ‘sliced noodles’).

Rice noodles, gravy, fried peanuts or soybeans, chopped scallions, thin slices of different kinds of meat are added at the food counter by the mifen chef for various versions of this renowned and tasty dish. You can also add marinated eggs at extra cost (1.5 yuan each).

Whatever the version of rice noodles, the gravy is the cream of it. The gravy is slow-boiled for several hours with various (up to 20) ingredients and spices, such as dried tangerine peel, cinnamon, and ginger. There is no standard recipe for making the gravy, so each noodle shop may have their own secret recipe that hopefully stands them out from other shops.

Well-chopped condiments are usually put on a separate table for customers to add by themselves, including spring onions, chili, pickled beans, and pickled white radish in chili sauce.

Rice Noodle Types and Alternatives

Rice noodle shops are typically the cheapest eateries in town, with standard mifen going for 3.5 yuan for 100g (2 liang, er liang /urr lyang/) or 4 yuan for 150g (3 liang, san liang /san lyang/).

Other cheap alternatives are fried noodles (炒粉 chaofen /chaoww-fnn/) and egg fried rice (蛋炒饭 danchaofan /dan-chaoww-fan/) for around 5 yuan. In air-con noodle bars and Yangshuo expect to pay a bit more.

Gravy Noodles (卤菜粉 lucaifen /loo-tsigh-fnn/)

Guilin Rice Noodles

Gravy Dry Noodles

This is the most common version of Guilin rice noodles. When preparing the rice noodles, the chef puts them in a sieve ladle to heat them up in boiling water, before putting them in a bowl.

Gravy, oil, fried peanuts, pickled beans, chopped scallion and thin slices of marinated meat are added on top. If you like it spicy, add some pepper oil yourself. Take a look at the mix of colors and smell the fragrance, before you stir them evenly. There is usually a free pork bone broth in a large self-service pot.

The most standard way of eating gravy noodles, is that you first eat (most of) the noodles, then add some broth and scallions and slurp up the rest. Of course you can add the free pork bone broth to the noodles to eat right in the beginning, but you might as well order a bowl of broth noodles, and see how different it is.

Broth Noodles (汤菜粉 tangcaifen /tung-tseye-fnn/)

Guilin Rice Noodles

Different noodle shops have their own recipe for making the broth, but the most common ingredients are pork, pig skin, and entrails. The chef adds the broth to the noodles a long with some chopped scallions, fried beans and vegetables. Broth noodles taste hot and fresh, especially suitable for people who like light flavors and want to get warm in winter.

Boiled Noodles (煮粉 zhufen /joo-fnn/)

Compared to the above two kinds of noodles, which are prepared by adding ingredients to pre-boiled noodles, boiled noodles are freshly boiled after you order and pay. There are two types: ‘three fresh’ boiled noodles, and sour and spicy boiled noodles.

The chef first puts the ingredients in an iron wok. For ‘three fresh’ noodles, they use pork, pig liver, and intestines; for sour and spicy noodles, they use pickled sour bamboo shoots and pickled chilies. Then the chef adds condiments like salt and chicken powder, vegetables, and finally puts the plain rice noodles into the thick soup to boil for a while to absorb the flavor.

Where to Eat Guilin Mifen

Guilin rice noodles is well-known throughout China, and it is also available in some other cities, but of course you have to taste it in its hometown to get the most authentic flavor. In Guilin, if you spot a noodle shop where lots of people are eating rice noodles (with crowds spilling out onto the street at breakfast time), eat there because that’s probably a good one. Below we recommend two old brands.
