    NY Noodletown--with the caveat that I never get the ho fun with black bean sauce, but rather the "dry" beef ho fun. The ho fun is very good at Congee Village as well.

      Phoenix Garden has Chow-Fun with Superior Soy-Bean Sauce (Dry Style, Meatless). Excellent!!
      Is Chow Fun the same as Ho Fun?

        Chow fun (炒粉) simply means stir fried noodles made from rice. He fen (河粉)--ho fun in Cantonese--are the soft wide noodles that we Westerners mean by chow fun; we usually call the thin dried rice noodles mei fun or mi fun (米粉). the most correct English name is chow ho fun or in Mandarin chow he fen; or for the thin noodles, chow mei fun or chow mi fen. They are all "chow": stir-fried.

            Yes, but Buddakan is at least 3 times as expensive as NY Noodletown and twice as expensive as Congee Village.
