Chinese cold noodles that you roll out - sort of like a fruit roll up

While in China I came across these a few times. They're awesome. Do they exist in the SGV?

Roll up noodles: 卷粉 juan fen - usually cold - 凉卷粉

  1. I think that's chow fun, and if so, I'm pretty sure you can buy them at any 99 Ranch.

      nope

      the dish is closer to zhu chang fen than chow fun, but it's neither of them.

      i'm pretty sure I was in the south, maybe Yunnan, when I was eating it.

        they're still rice noodles though right? just uncut

        1. re: blimpbinge

          yes

          it doesn't really show it there but the noodles are rolled up. you unroll them in the sauce so it picks up the sauce as you roll it into your mouth.

    2. Does it start out looking like this?

      I've never seen it myself (which doesn't mean anything), but maybe a different pic will spark something for one of the other posters....

        it was never presented like that, but that looks good too.

      2. Looks like chee cheong fun. It's one of my favorites when I go to Malaysia. Rice noodles rolled up and then drizzled with a sweet soy sauce and sesame seeds. Some places serve it with chilli sauce too.

        I've never seen chee cheong fun here, but you can buy the noodles and sauce from most asian markets. It's not the same though.

          not exactly, that's still hot right? i'm pretty sure Elite serves chee cheong fun.

            I've only had chee cheong fun served cold/room temp before. Never had a hot version.
