Generally part of Malaysian cuisine, the Ipoh Hor Fun literally means rice noodle from Ipoh – the capital city of the Malaysian state of Perak – in Cantonese. They’re flat in shape, and are generally prepared in a rich broth with meat and vegetables, or as a stir fry.
Ipoh is famous for its cuisine so you know the noodles are going to be great and the dishes are delicious. The flavours are influenced by the majority-Chinese population, most of whom are of Cantonese and Hakka descent.
Kang Kang Noodles have been providing Singaporeans with delicious noodle products since 1936, and our noodles have only gotten better over time. For example, our fresh noodles are preservative free, all natural and pasteurised, so can be stored without refrigeration and with an increased shelf-life of up to 4 weeks.
Recently we saw a need to go even further with the health benefits of our noodle products, and so we introduced our Wholegrain range. Wholegrains are known to have a number of health benefits – you can find out more about these here.
And remember, when looking for Kang Kang Noodles look in the Fresh Food section of any major Singapore supermarket, not the refrigerated section.
