Boston ingredient hunt - flat rice noodles for Pad See Ew

grant.cook Oct 11, 2012 06:39 AM


I see lot of fresh noodles in places like H-Mart, but I can't recall seeing the wider flat rice noodles used in making Pad See Ew (sort of like pappardalle in width). Anyone know where I could get those fresh or frozen?

    Hong Kong Market usually has them, at least the Malden location. Sometimes they come pre-cut but usually you have to slice them up yourself - the noodles come in a package about 6" square.

      The Allston Hong Kong (or is it still Super 88?) usually has them. China Merchandise on 3A in Burlington often has them as well. They are in the refrigerator case toward the back near the end of the first couple of aisles. I have a couple of packs in the freezer that I picked up from there a few weeks ago.

        I Think I've seen them at CMart in Chinatown.

          You want the noodles called "ho fun" 河粉. The "fun" here has for some reason become "foon" in New England Americanized Cantonese, which is a very not-logical way of writing it. Always available in the fresh noodle section at any Chinese market.
