Gui Lin Mi Fen - Flushing

Pookipichu | Feb 16, 201504:27 PM

Gui Lin Mi Fen is a noodle shop that opened up on 40th Road in Flushing, across from the Main Street LIRR stop.

It features Guilin style rice noodles in classic mi fen and qie fen (flat noodle). The mi fen comes with broth on the side, qie fen comes in broth.

I've tried both styles and I prefer the mi fen, because I like to keep the broth on the side and add as desired. The Guilin noodles come with tangy Chinese preserved vegetables, scallion, parsley and roasted soy beans. There is also a chili condiment on the side.

Tried the Shanghai qie fen and the Guilin mi fen. The former is light on the protein as the chicken is a bit bony, it comes with crunchy black fungus. The Guilin has more meat and I like the crispy fried pork. Both are quite light and I wound up eating a second dinner elsewhere, but ymmv.

The flavors are delicious, the mi fen is particularly springy and at $7.25 a bowl, the higher quality of the ingredients vs. some other Flushing noodle shops make it worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood (I wouldn't say it's worth traveling from Manhattan, unless you are a Guilin noodle fanatic). The space is clean and new, modern-ish. It's another strong addition to the neighborhood.
