Kai Si Hor Fun (Flat-Rice Noodles Soup With Chicken And Prawn)

This dish is known as flat-rice noodles soup with chicken and prawn or kai see hor fun in Malaysia. it’s also famously known as Ipoh sar hor fun. the rice noodles from Ipoh boast to be the best in Malaysia because of its silky-smooth texture. I have to concur on that score. the soups are made with chicken and fried prawn shells and are naturally sweet. it is delicious, warming and wholesome.
