Chinatown: where to buy fresh rice noodles?
My kids like to eat fresh rice noodles, the wide kind that are rolled up and are about 10 inches long. My in-laws buy them in Philly’s Chinatown. You need to steam them before eating. Is this a common item in the refrigerated section in most Chinatown grocery stores? If not, can someone please recommend a store? I’ll be in the area tonight. Thanks!
I also recommend the place on the northeast corner of Grand & Bowery. Be warned they do not stay open late.
While you're there, try some of their fried rice noodles with bean sprouts - a small plate will set you back a dollar!
Thanks for the rec regarding the northeast corner of Grand & Bowery. I'm not too familiar with the area, so I was heading east on Grand and ended up getting the noodles from a very small store between Grand and Elizabeth. Also run by two ladies. The cost was 40 cents per bag. I then walked another 50 feet and found the tofu store on the corner of Grand and Bowery. I'll hit that store next time I'm in town!
