Since 1945: 75 years of Serving Lo Shu Fen in Miri

Greetings foodies! I’m here to recommend a place in Miri serving one of the best Lo Shu Fen that this city has to offer. Lo Shu Fen is basically noodles that resembles the tail of a mouse. Hence, the Malay name for it, “Mee Tikus”. The dish is usually topped off with some flavourful minced pork, crispy fried shallots and fresh spring onions as garnish. Very appetizing indeed!

Ah Lo Traditional Noodle Shop

Ah Lo Traditional Noodle Shop is famous for their specialty, Lo Shu Fen and happens to be one of the few places in Miri that does it well. This place is usually packed with customers on weekends because their noodles have a very distinctive texture that taste like no other. The eatery was even awarded as The Winner of “Outstanding Food Outlets Kopitiam” in December 2019 by the Sarawak Tourism.

The Story Behind The Noodles

The business first began long ago when Madam Lo’s grandmother would sell bowls of Lo Shu Fen from door to door. Soon after that, they decided to open up a stall in Miri Open Air Market for more customers to endeavour their food. Today, this humble eatery, currently located at Pujut Area, has been operating for a total of 75 years by Madam Lo (the owner) and her family.

They hope to continue passing down their family’s traditional recipe to produce authentic, fresh and healthy rice noodles just like how they made it back in the early days. The 2nd generation, Madam Lo’s mother, is still cooking up their noodles in the kitchen which is equipped with a customized noodle-making machine just to produce their Lo Shu Fen.

The ingredients to make this noodle contains rice flour, water and maybe some salt for taste. It is always freshly made-in house to ensure its firmness and quality texture for customers to enjoy.

After cooking the noodles in boiling hot water, it is being set aside for it to chill.

The Lo Shu Fen is topped off with some very crispy fried shallots, well-seasoned minced pork and fresh spring onions as garnish. I was beyond astonished when sinking my teeth into it as it is full of flavours. The texture of the noodles is different from other food vendors who sells the same menu. Maybe because having rice being part of their ingredients, it gives that very springy bite (that QQ texture). Best part of all, it contains no preservative and no colouring.

Their second food item is the Lo Noodles whereby their Mee are made from eggs. Same as the previous dish, it is topped off with some flavourful minced pork, aromatic crispy shallots and spring onions. Definitely something that you should try if you wanna take a break from the regular Kolo Mee.
