I remember many many years ago when I was really young, there was this incident of contamination with a batch of lou shu fun that was served in a primary school somewhere in Malaysia that resulted in death of several small children.

After that tragic incident, the popularity of this unique noodle went down (at least in Penang) for quite a number of years. In fact, I don’t think it has fully recovered.

I recall we used to be able to order lou shu fun at most kueh teow soup places, these days, you only find them in several specific lou shu fun places. One of the more famous ones is Mama Kitchen Restaurant at TTDI.

Cheesie and I went there the other day for dinner. We ordered the signature clay pot lou shu fun, rice with fried roast pork, and spinach with century egg soup.

lo she fun, vegetable with soup, rice with fried roast pork

TheΒ clay pot lou shu fun (RM 8) came with plenty of minced pork and that signature raw egg on top. You usually mix it all up and let the egg gets cooked in heat still retained from the pot. Very rich and flavorful

What is better than roast pork? Fried roast pork (RM 6) of course! If you haven’t had it yet, give this a try. There are plenty of fried garlic to go with the crunchy roast pork too. It was not bad at all.

The vegetable dish (RM 6) was ordered to give some sense of balance and a dosage of vitamin C (basically for cheesie to show her mom).

Despite the popularity of this place, I like the fact that they still manage to keep the price very reasonable. With drinks, the bill came to less than RM 25 for the two of us.

  1. The raw egg is always a nice touch! Surprisingly, we don’t have lou shu fun in Sibu, but there are a lot in Kuching. Hokkien specialty?

  2. nothing beats claypot rice plus egg. lol. lu shu fun goes well with the rice ?

  3. Yeah, I still remember the incident because of the things that they put to make the lou shue fun. But it’s been quite a while. I still normally buy at pasar to cook at home. There are still quite a number around in KL. One of it is near Jalan Sultan.

  4. Huai Bin,
    Interesting that they don’t have it in Sibu, actually I’m not sure if it has anything to do with Hokkien though.

    haha we ate them separately
