Where can you buy uncooked e-fu noodles in Toronto? The thin type. I can't seem to find it in any Chinese supermarket.

Pls see pic below:

    I've tended to see them at the noodle areas - in a large round forms (maybe 9" in diameter by 3-4" in height). Certainly, you may see them in the same areas as the cooler areas where you might see the tofu displayed.

    I've also seen them at Wah Chong's on Broadview (233 Broadview at Dundas) - as the large round forms.

      When you buy them at the store, they are not thin and flat, but round like a thick cooked spaghetti. That's because they are deep fried so they puff up. Before using, you have to blanch them to soften (and remove some of the residual oil).

        I have added a picture to the Wiki page. It was taken at T&T; they are in the cooler next to the fresh noodles and soy milk.
