“Short Rice Noodles” or “Lao Shu Fen” or “Yin Zhen Fen” (老鼠粉 / 银针粉) is a variety of Chinese noodles. In Chinese, Lao Shu Fen (老鼠粉) literally means ‘Rat Noodles’. Another name for Lao Shu Fen is Yin Zhen Fen (银针粉) which literally means ‘Silver Needle Noodles’. Don’t worry - the noodles are neither made from the little rodents nor from needles but so called because the shape of the noodles is long and tapered much like a rat’s tail or a needle.

The noodles are made from ground rice flour but sometimes added with some cornstarch to reduce breakage during frying. Just like most Chinese noodles, they are commercially produced and seldom homemade as it’s too tedious to make a small amount for home consumption.

The noodles may be stir-fried, scalded and flavored with a mixture of sauces or cooked in soup. As with most Chinese noodles, it can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner; as a main course or supplementing a rice meal.
