The Elusive Subgum Rice Sticks

Bob W. | Aug 13, 2001 01:09 PM

I need a new source for "subgum rice sticks." These particular rice sticks are coin-sized oval shaped noodles. Wua Pei in the Chinatown Eatery served them but to my chagrin I recently found that that establishment is gone. :<(

These rice sticks are also translated as New Year's Cake.

Many years ago Robert Nadeau said that chow foon replaced gnocchi as the apotheosis of pasta. These rice sticks take pasta to yet another level.

Can anyone help?
